I recommend looking at the Fedora Java packaging guidelines (you
probably already did this):
Yes. I learned how to do the wrapper script using jpackage utilites
from that page, for example. Though it was a while ago, and there has
been a number of changes to my package, so I reviewed the page again
- do you really want the gcj stuff?
Well, that is a good example where I would appreciate advice from
someone more experienced in Java packaging.
Originally I didn't have any GCJ support. I didn't see any need. But
then David pointed out that
GCJ AOT bits SHOULD be built and included in packages.
"SHOULD" (assuming RFC 2119 interpretation) is pretty strong. So I
followed the instructions on the page and added the support.
But then in comment 20
) Chen Lei says
that many Java packages have dropped GCJ support. And now you ask if
I want it.
I get the impression that the Wiki doesn't really reflect current
practice. Is that a correct understanding? Is GCJ support to be
considered optional nowdays, or maybe even deprecated?
