Jars are pretty much a lost cause, we never managed to support them
properly, they've not been designed for rpm-like dep checking and
they're likely to be discontinued before we get decent support even if
we started a new effort today.

OSGi and the Modules bit SUN is adding to Java 7

http://jcp.org/en/jsr/detail?id=277

however present good rpm integration potential. But someone
knowledgeable with java and rpm needs to create the metadata bridge (it
would be especially interesting for the Java 7 modules bit, as it's
still not finalised, so it's still possible to get the SUN spec tweaked
to help rpm integration)

I'm not volunteering :p
