Someone reported at freenode's ##java that make-jpkg does not work with
I wonder why that is?
Isn't it so that regardless of what is contained in a Sun JDK/JRE
archive that you need to extract all of it, maintaining the folder
structure, and then have the few key binaries hooked up via symlinks and
some trickery to ensure that "class path" is correct (either by relying
on Sun's binaries figuring it out properly or by setting the CLASSPATH
If that is all so, wouldn't make-jpkg be able to work with all Sun
JDK/JRE archives (past and future), provided they maintain the
up-to-this-point-known binary names properly, so that creating the
symlinks works the way it should?
With best regards
