Bug#621857: dh sequencing isn't the same as cdbs sequencing

Package: javahelper
Version: 0.32
Severity: normal


  I've just been hit by a problem with respect to the sequencing in

insert_after("jh_installlibs", "jh_classpath");
insert_after("jh_classpath", "jh_manifest");

  This means that all manifest-related actions will be taken *AFTER*
the installation of the jars, which is bad since that means that in
the debian/package.classpath file for instance, one must specify the
target rather than the source. While one would normally write

  stuff.jar first-dep.jar second.jar

  one has to write

  debian/stuff/usr/share/java/stuff-version.jar ...

  This is pretty painful at best ;-)...

  BTW, I'm grateful for javahelper ! I think that eventually all java
libs should be transitioned to use it (well, at least those in control
of the java team), that would make java packaging a great deal easier.
