I've problems packaging the stargate (REST) contrib for HBase. The used JAX-RS
implementation jersey has so many yet "undebianized" dependencies, that I
won't be able to include this contrib anytime soon in the upcoming Debian
This is only to let you know about my desperation.
But there's only the thing that jersey and it's dependencies on java.net
(jaxb, jsr311, txw, ...?) are insane in such an amount, that I dare to ask,
whether you could imagine using an alternative JAX-RS implementation?
Chances are low, that you'd consider this only because of a distributions sane
policy to build everything from source, but who knows...?
And on the other hand, none of the alternative JAX-RS implementations are
packaged for Debian yet. So in any case it's a long way to get stargate into
 source code archives are very well hidden, in different formats (jar, zip)
and strange directory layouts with or without build system files...
Thanks for sympathy.
