Wjar-not-in-usr-share

Tag versions

The tag is present in Lintian version 2.108.13. That is the most recent version we know about.

The classpath listed in some of the files references files outside of /usr/share, while all installed JAR files must be within /usr/share/java for libraries or /usr/share/package for JARs for private use.

The rationale is that jar files are in almost all cases architecture independent and therefore should be in /usr/share. If the jar file is truly architecture dependent or it cannot be moved since symlinked jar files are not accepted by the application, then please override this tag.

Please refer to Debian policy for Java section 2.2 and Debian policy for Java section 2.3 for details.
