libproxool-java packaging does not use upstream build.xml


Hi,

I am working on migrating (build)rdeps of libservlet2.4-java. While
working on libproxool-java I observed that the packaging bits include
a separate debian/build.xml file even though upstream ships one. There
is no mention in debian/changelog as to why this file was created or
why wasn't it removed when upstream file became available.

Does anyone has any idea? Is there any particular reason for not using
upstream build script?

Short answer: feel free to remove such home grown build.xml files.

> Is there any particular reason for not using upstream build script?

The longer explanation: the upstream build.xml often needs patching to
be usable for Debian packaging. Whenever the patch got bigger than a
home grown build.xml I've switched to my own file because maintaining
patches was not as easy in the past.

Today I prefer using the upstream build system. Maintaining patches got
easier thanks to gbp-pq that I use even with svn hosted packages.
Patches can often be kept small by setting properties in
debian/ant.properties. And using Maven is much easier now thanks to Ludovic.

If using the upstream build system is too difficult I recommend using
javahelper or maven-ant-helper.

Cheers,
Torsten
