I am currently working on this package, trying to resolve the remaining issues and dependencies. (There are more than just missing dependencies, e.g. build script does not compile all necessary classes, stubs and parsers, init script is missing, even when completely built, run-script will not yet start.) AFAICS this will take some time still as the package seems to be in an early unstable phase. See

I worked on this package yesterday and I think I have made some progress. It is possible to built some packages from jbossas4 source that do not have circular dependencies. Thus we get kind of bootstraping we need.

Following binary packages will be built from jbossas4 source -
1. libjboss-ejb3x-java
2. libjboss-j2ee-java
3. libjboss-jmx-java
4. libjboss-naming-java
5. libjboss-test-java
Other packages will still be built but not having any jar files in them. This will push all the other jboss related packages out of DEPWAIT and we will at least know what other problems we might have.

Depending on the packages mentioned above followed external packages shouldn't have any build problem now.
1. libjboss-xml-binding-java
2. libjboss-integration-java
3. libjboss-remoting-java

Once first round is done I will rework the package, readding the build deps and evaluating what other binaries can be produced.

Please find attached debdiff.

Please find attached next debdiff. Should solve FTBFS for libjboss-cache1-java and subsequently libhibernate*.
