I'm going to get my "hello world" servlet running
tonight in FC4, and was about to build my .java file
into a .class file so it can go in
and started to type:
gcj -C --classpath=/var/lib/tomcat5/common/lib/...
when I noticed that all the jars in that directory
have square brackets in the names.
Why are they named that way? I've never come across
that anywhere else, and it seems odd given that you
need to backslash-escape the 's on the command line.

So what I understand is this: (Correct me if I'm wrong)
1. Problems with servlets are solvable with free Java tools, and these
are not major showstoppers
2. Base64 and Parserdelegator problems need some work
3. Main problem is that the free Javamail does not implement some
methods that are needed by OX.
Is it possible for the OX developers to work with the Classpath
developers to resolve these problems ? As far as I can understand there
is no major bottleneck other than some missing functionality, and I'm
sure that the Classpath people would love to have people collaborating
with them. :)

I generally refer to the Debian Free Software Guidelines for my
definition of Free software :)
Thanks a lot
java-1.4.2-gcj-compat provides jaxp_parser_impl, but it doesn't require
xerces-j2, which seems to actually provide the functionality.
Is my analysis correct? If so, I'll bugzilla it.
