Subject: [gentoo-java] tools.jar and javaws.jar problems

Hi,

I need for netbeans ebuild to solve the problem with tools.jar inclusion
of ant classpath. Another package, sweethome3d needs dependency on
javaws.jar. I decided to cover these both in single email as it is both
jdk/jre related.

wrt tools.jar. there is a solution that is ideal for me:
http://bugs.gentoo.org/show_bug.cgi?id=231673
I'd appreciate if someone from our team who has more experience with
eclasses and knows whether it could cause any problems, could close this
bug, or at least say "it's ok to apply it". I could do it on my own but
I do not want to brake anything, either functionally nor some rules.

wrt javaws.jar, I need a package or a way that enables me to depend on
this jar both from DEPEND and RDEPEND and in case of DEPEND be able to
include it on the classpath. I already asked Betelgeuse but got only
single-word answer "virtuals" and no other answer to my request on
clarification. Maybe I am totally dumb, but I do not know what he meant.
So, does anyone have an idea how we could include javaws.jar on
classpath both for compilation and runtime for packages that need it?
