Note that the java halp jar jajuk releases contains the Sun build from whom we
removed unseless classes to reduce the size (mainly GTK look and feel stuff),
you can safely ignore this and build your own full package.
About JH licening, it should be GPL 2 now (see

Note that AFAIK, jdic project is dead (a concurrent project, blackwood is
managed by Mozilla and Sun:
http://www.mozilla.org/projects/blackwood/webclient/). The issue you filled has
no more utility from jajuk 1.3.9 as we replaced jdic browser by a 100%
pure java GPL browser: Cobra, making things mush easier for us. However, we
still use few jdic features: the tray and launching default
browser using 'Desktop' class (in an external window). Theses features have been
integrated into jre 1.6 but as we don't want to add a requierement on a JRE >
1.5, we have still to bring jdic for the moment, it may disapear in about 1 year

I think it's faisable to make jintellitype to be loaded dynamicaly onyl under
windows using java reflection but the patch is non-trivial, I'll check this out
in upcomig 1.3.11 fixpack release (see https://trac.jajuk.info/ticket/606 ).

OK, FYI, I began to use the concurrent LGPL project JGoodies Forms API for new
GUI and it looks totaly faisable to remove all tablelayout occurences but it may
take a very long time and an large and improductive work to be achieve totaly so
I cannot give a date or release for that. New features are out current priority.

I'm afraid I cannot do much more for now but don't hesitate to come back to us.

PS: FYI, we dropped a lot of dependancies in upcoming 1.4. We have only one look
and feel remaining (Substance), we removed http-client and l2fprod librairies as
Thanks for your work for jajuk packaging.
