well, dpkg-buildpackage is better than invoking debian/rules directly. You'll
have to tweak several of the files under debian/, including certainly
changelog, copyright and control, probably also including sommme install files.

Well, it should be easy to do with jh_build, but there's nothing stopping you
writing a build.xml for ant - dh7 should pick that up automatically too.
Regardless, you should use the rest of javahelper.
