Description Stanislav Ochotnicky 2013-10-22 15:48:23 UTC
Package libguestfs seems to contain versioned jar files in %{_javadir}
(/usr/share/java). Such versioned files cause problems for automatic
requires generation and violate packaging guidelines[1].

List of subpackages and contained versioned jars

There are cases where this can be a false positive. Most likely if:
   * your package is compatibility version and contains only versioned
   * your package has version in the name of jars that are part of
     package name

Thank you,

I don't really know about Java.  However it looks as if just
renaming the jar as %{name}.jar is sufficient, right?  Just
renaming it won't break anything?

Huh, that must be one of weirder packaging issues I've seen in a long time :-0 

Yes, your jar file should not have version in it otherwise applications using symlinks will break if the version changes.

Simple rename will do. libguestfs-java is not required by anything (yet) so it definitely won't cause any issues.

I fixed this in Rawhide:

    Don't use versioned jar file (RHBZ#1022133).

Not built yet.
