Subject: Bug 225659: java-pkg_jarfrom --virtual virtual-name jarname.jar fails with JVM providers.
Date: Wed, 29 Apr 2009 23:30:18 +1200
I would like the discuss the solutions to bug 225659 [1]

When using jar-from with a virtual that can return both a jar or a "vm
provider" there is no way to specify a target_jar when calling jar from.
basically jar-from calls java-config -p virtual with may or may not
return a string with paths to jars within it.  In the case of there
being a vm provider java-config will return an empty string.   Currently
jar-from errors as it is unable to find the target_jar from returned
string and is therefore unable to link to that jar.

Now we can fix this issue but simply ignoring the fact that we didn't
find the target_jar when --virtual is specified.  Basically see [2].
This will therefore never error, even when the virtual does not have vm
providers and is only ever satisfied by a package.
as an example

java-pkg_jar-from --virtual javamail

would not error,  it also wouldn't create the link it is meant to.

So Questions:

Should jar-from maintain its current behavour?
Are there any other solutions to this issue?
Any other comments?
