Welcome Mr Marcell Meszaros to comment useless and harmful information under my every pkg!!!

As per project's build.xml:


Please remove ant from makedepends.

Okay, sorry for missing to reply, you can use BioArchLinux repository to use it directly, as recommended, we should use build scripts to build jar.

Does building the jar file ourselves instead of downloading one from Broad Institute give us any benefits? AUR guidelines ( explicitly allow the use of prebuilt deliverables for Java packages without adding the -bin suffix. I think using the prebuilt jar as it was in the PKGBUILDs for the earlier versions would simplify things significantly.

Not compatible with Gradle version 7 and up, due to the following:

Gradle version 5.6.* is needed for this to work, but unfortunately the gradle5 AUR package is also broken. So it must be installed manually, using one of the methods listed here:

Fails to build in a chroot using aurutils, gradle complains about the maven plugin:

FAILURE: Build failed with an exception.

  • Where: Build file '/build/picard-tools/src/picard-2.24.1/build.gradle' line: 13

  • What went wrong: Plugin [id: 'maven'] was not found in any of the following sources:

  • Gradle Core Plugins (not a core plugin, please see for available core plugins)

  • Plugin Repositories (plugin dependency must include a version number for this source)

  • Try: Run with --stacktrace option to get the stack trace. Run with --info or --debug option to get more log output. Run with --scan to get full insights.

Done, thanks for letting me know, @greyltc.

From the github repo's As of version 2.0.1 (Nov. 2015) Picard requires Java 1.8 (jdk8u66). The last version to support Java 1.7 was release 1.141. @wookietreiber, I think you need to update the dependencies here.
