I've found the _JAVA primary reasonably ok to use. The only problem with it
that I would like to be able to solve, is to not install '.class' files when a
'.jar' file is all that is wanted - it ends up installing both for me at the
moment. I'm afraid I don't know anything about ant or jakarta, and I haven't
used other Java IDEs to know how they might handle the project builds.

Here are some example Java oriented rules - the KDevelop front end would just
need to make it possible to specify something like these:

data_DATA = koala.jar
datadir = $(kde_libraries)/java
koala.jar: org/kde/koala/classjava.stamp
        $(JAR) cf koala.jar org/kde/koala/*.class

javadir = $(kde_libraries)/java/org/kde/koala
JAVAROOT = ../../..
CLASSPATH = ../../..:../../../../../qtjava/javalib
