Wjar-not-in-usr-share

The tag is present in Lintian version 2.114.68. That is the most recent version we know about.

We use semantic versions. The patch number is a commit step indicator relative to the 2.108.0 release tag in our Git repository.

You can find the detection logic for this version at commit a1e47cb. For merge requests, please use the latest version in the Lintian check languages/java.

Visibility: warning

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.
