The following is not a joke:
- KDE4 needs java for best performance
more precise, soprano, used by nepomuk (semantic desktop thingie), has a sesame backend (java) and a redland backend (c++). According to upstream and others, the sesame backend is way faster than the redland backend.
In the soprano svn dir (and in the pristine tarball), there are a few jars put in precompiled:
This isn’t completely beautiful, but as they all are bsd licensed, it is at least legal.
But it isn’t good enough for debian, as we ship sources and build them. (I think I have heard at least fedora mumble something similar)
The two last jar files, the slf4j ones, are available packaged in debian in the libslf4j-java package. but openrdf-sesame is not available.
If some persons out there has java knowledge, debian packaging knowledge, preferably knowledge of debian java policy and some spare time, packaging openrdf-sesame would be much apprecaited.
And after that, getting the soprano sesame backend built is next goal.
Thanks in advance. applications welcome.
