Confirming that fixes mentioned in @alexanderp comment are required.

Need to add jdk8-openjdk to makedepends, and modify the build line as such JAVA_HOME=/usr/lib/jvm/java-8-openjdk ant release, else compilation fails.

Finally fixed the build and submitter bug upstream.

The package that friend @peeeee made available showed that it works here very well! Is there an update that output shows an error, could I fix it?

I have probably similiar problem to xorxcel when trying to build javahelp2. Output: [javac] warning: [options] bootstrap class path not set in conjunction with -source 1.4 [javac] error: Source option 1.4 is no longer supported. Use 1.6 or later. [javac] error: Target option 1.4 is no longer supported. Use 1.6 or later. My javac --version gives me 9.0.1.

@xorxcel can you describe what was going wrong?

I also had problems building it, until I explicitly installed jdk8-openjdk. I only had jdk9-openjdk installed before that, which this pkgbuild doesn't seem to be compatible to.

@peeeee Was dropbox site actually down? Why did you upload an unsigned package but not the sources? I wouldn't trust this. Otherwise, RTFM Why MS drive of all places?

In case anyone can't get the javahelp2.tar.xz , here is a makepkg-ed executive package :!AtjsNyKHoIUajRM9PDM9AkNaUf_X ,you can just download it and intall from local disk.

@hormol Maybe check if your system is configured correctly? Helpful link: Also it seems, that you shouldn't normally have JAVA_HOME variable even set in Arch...

I also need javahelp2 for building scilab. While compiling it I got build-impl.xml:283: Unable to find a javac compiler; is not on the classpath. Perhaps JAVA_HOME does not point to the JDK. It is currently set to "/usr/lib/jvm/java-7-openjdk/jre" export JAVA_HOME...does give nothing. Any ideas ?

mpsdantas commented on 2017-05-19 18:30 (UTC)

I have one problem, the installation this package cannot access the repository of javahelp 2 :(. That is why cannot download scilab. Can anyone help me solve this problem?

@coincoin this PKGBUILD is fine. Your $srcdir seems to be '/javahelp2/src', so your makepkg probably misconfigured.

Here's the correct PKGBUILD (with the appropriate changes in the URLs as the one provided by this PKGBUILD contains a dead link):

eolianoe commented on 2015-08-03 15:18 (UTC)

The current link for source and url are currently broken, maybe you can use [1] as url and the subversion repository as sources, which can lead to [2]. Besides, the pkgname should be changed to javahelp ? [1] or [2]
