The java package guildelines clearly state that its not required to compile java packages...

https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Java_package_guidelines

"You do not need to compile Java applications from source. Very little optimization goes into the compile process, as with gcc created binaries."

This package should probably be called squirrel-sql-bin because it downloads the binaries.

"Use suffix -bin always unless you are sure there will never be a source-based package" (https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Nonfree_applications_package_guidelines)
