I'm not particularly motivated to do it. There is a JavaMake ( and a JavaDepend http://www.cs.mcgill.ca/~stever/software/JavaDeps/ http://www.gnu.org/software/java/java.html separate projects, both listed at gnu.org. JavaDepend creates GNU Make dependecies, but it is easy to tweak it into satisfying the different syntax JavaMake uses. The one thing I am missing from JavaMake is a replacement for the UNIX find (I am using a simplistic Makefile that traverses the *.java source tree from the root), but for your purposes the existing operators might be sufficient. I was wondering - is there an org.gnu class hierarchy already? I guess that a lot of this stuff (make, depend, config maybe - how'd you do this in Java, getopt and regex, bash....) might crop up over time, especially when people want to deploy on Win32. It might be worth considering dropping this into a good place and maintain them in a unified way? b.
