[opensuse-packaging] packaging java libraries

Hello All,

I'm not sure if this belongs here or on the buildsvc mailing list but
this list seems more appropriate to me.

I find myself building and wanting to package more and more apps
written in java which use maven as the build/dependency tool. Java
devs seem to be more then happy to allow maven to grab and trust
xyz.jar from whatever external repo it can found on. Repackaging jar's
is unclean and any dependencies need to be available as rpm packages
and this is something I've been struggling with for java packages,
especially since a few I'd like to push into Factory at some point,
examples being puppetdb and wirefly.

For other development languages, lets use perl, we have tools like
cpanspec which does a great job of grabbing the source and creating
the spec files. There are also some automated process on the build
service which create packages in devel:languages:perl:CPAN-[A-Z]
repo's so it's super easy to branch them and push them into
devel:languages:perl and subsequently into Factory or another devel

Is anyone aware of a cpanspec like tool for java libraries to
accomplish this? I've looked briefly but haven't found anything. I
dont' know if anyone as SuSE's put any thought into this, but I
figured i'd ask.
