I trying to figure what is the correct way to declare dependencies of JAR
files from other packages, I first asked this in debian-debel, but have
been forwarded to this list, see forwarded message below.

Subject: Correct way to detect JAR dependencies
To: debian-de...@lists.debian.org


I'm upstream developer for zeroc-ice, in one of the packages build from
this source zeroc-icegridgui, a bug has been reported regarding missing JAR
dependencies (Bug#846498).

The package in question uses java:depends but that seems to not work here
or maybe is not being used correctly:


dpkg produces a warning dpkg-gencontrol: warning: Depends field of package
zeroc-icegridgui: unknown substitution variable ${java:Depends}

What is the correct way to declare the dependencies for JARs include in
separate packages?
