I'm resending this as it doesn't seem to have made it to the list.
Perhaps this was because of the attachement.
I have now put the .tar.gz file at
Earlier message follows:
A certain java program is run as part of "tex4ht" to convert from tex
to odt format. (I maintain "tex4ht" for Debian).
The program was compiled into a .jar file using ecj-gcj. A jar file
is also distributed by upstream. The remarks below apply to both
these .jar files.
This conversion runs to completion with the sun-java-jre
environment. Under the java-compat-gcj runtime environment
it exits with a run-time error. This has been reported as #471837.
To reproduce the error you can un-pack the enclosed .tar.gz in a
directory and run
java -jar ./tex4ht.jar xtpipes -i ./xtpipes/ -o junk.out xtpipes_failed.tmp
The sources for tex4ht.jar are in the java subdirectory.
It is not clear to me how completely java-compat-gcj is supposed to
replicate the sun-java-jre or what the correct dependencies of
this tex4ht.jar should be. The (java portion of the) build dependencies are
ecj-gcj and fastjar.
