missing-classpath

All reports of missing-classpath for the archive. The extended description of this tag is:

None of the jar files contained in the package declare a Class-Path in their manifest, but the package depends on at least one java library. That means that either the dependency is not needed or at least one of the JARs should include a classpath.

It is important to keep the classpath up-to-date to allow the automatic detection of dependencies at run time. Having a Class-Path element in the manifest allows for painless transitions if the class path of the dependencies of the library ever changes.

Failing to do that means that for every change in class path, all rdepends must update their wrapper scripts, which is a lot of work for nothing.

Severity: normal, Certainty: possible

Check: java, Type: binary
