There is a JavaMake ( and a JavaDepend

separate projects, both listed at JavaDepend
creates GNU Make dependecies, but it is easy to tweak
it into satisfying the different syntax JavaMake uses.
The one thing I am missing from JavaMake is a replacement
for the UNIX find (I am using a simplistic Makefile that
traverses the *.java source tree from the root), but for
your purposes the existing operators might be sufficient.

I was wondering - is there an org.gnu class hierarchy
already? I guess that a lot of this stuff (make, depend,
config maybe - how'd you do this in Java, getopt and 
regex, bash....) might crop up over time, especially 
when people want to deploy on Win32. It might be worth 
considering dropping this into a good place and maintain
them in a unified way?
