Default How to apply maven build system (Was: How to use Debian packaged freehep instead of upstream provided freehep.jar)


inspired by some hints about Java packaging I tried another package. It
is called patristic[1] (just another biological phylogeny software). It
comes just with a directory full of *.java files and the binary download
just tells in what directory layout the classes should end up. Chances
to contact upstream seem low (Homepage mentioned on the scientific
publication page[2] is not available any more). So I decided to start
some maven training and did

mvn archetype:generate -DgroupId=Patristic -DartifactId=patristic -DarchetypeArtifactId=maven-archetype-quickstart -DinteractiveMode=false

as it is suggested here[3]

That's fine in the case of patristic - I'd need to repack the code in
any case - so why not applying the maven directory layout?

I'm actually not very keen on really using maven as long as I can
get the package working at all - but I actually have no real clue
what command line would trigger the build process (and upstream)
seems to be dead. So in principle the most simple help would be
a command line which builds the JAR.

Kind regards and thanks for your patient help
