Almost too relaxed to type, but I'll give it a shot.

JPackage is out.  Long story.

However, I hope to finish up an RPM Factory that
will create an RPM mirror of the entire Maven
Repository this week.

Then once all the dependencies that ApacheDS uses are
RPMed, a main installer RPM can be created that has
the same dependencies as the maven build.

OK - So when installing ApacheDS someone just types

yum install ApacheDS

This will fetch the main installer RPM.

Then yum looks at it's dependencies at gets them all,
and all of the libraries are installed in

/usr/share/java ... I think...anyways the same FHS
compliant directory that jpackage would install them

The classloader configuration of the main server
installer will then be updated to load the libraries
from there.

Then it's done I think.
