* Package name : eclipse-debian-helper Version : 1.0 Upstream Author : Emmanuel Bourg * URL : https://salsa.debian.org/java-team/eclipse-debian-helper * License : Apache-2.0 Programming Lang: Perl Description : Helper tools for building Eclipse related packages This project contains helper tools to ease the packaging of Eclipse related projects. These projects often consist in a collection of bundles built with Tycho. Since Tycho isn't fully usable in Debian yet this package provides an alternative way of building the bundles using Ant. Eclipse Debian Helper provides an Ant macro designed to build a bundle and a debhelper buildsystem class to reduce the boilerplate in debian/rules. By convention we assume a one to one mapping between bundles and Debian packages. The package name is automatically derived from the bundle name. For example the org.eclipse.foo.bar bundle is packaged as libeclipse-foo-bar-java. Equinox packages are handled slightly differently, org.eclipse.equinox.foo is mapped to libequinox-foo-java. The binary packages carry the version of the bundle packaged. For example if the project eclipse-platform-foo 4.9.2 contains the version 1.2.3 of the bundle org.eclipse.foo, the version of the libeclipse-foo-java package will be 1.2.3+eclipse4.9.2-1. This package will be maintained by the Java Team.
