Dear maintainers,

android-toolchain-jack requires both the existing libecj-java and the
"org.eclipse.jdt.compiler.apt" module in "eclipse.jdt.core". As the
upstream of src:ecj is exactly "eclipse.jdt.core", so I wish that the
entire "eclipse.jdt.core" is packaged in Debian as several non-GUI
Java libraries.

I noticed that "org.eclipse.jdt.compiler.apt" is provided by
eclipse-jdt, which is a GUI application component (a plugin of Eclipse
IDE). There's no need for a command line program to depend on a
graphical package which will then pulls the entire Eclipse Platform.

This is the maintainer address of Debian's Java team
Please use for discussions and questions.
