What steps will reproduce the problem? The following pre-compiled binary-jar-files are part of the source distribution:
src/servers/xtreemos/cdaclient.jar What is the expected output? What do you see instead? Move all jar-files to get a real source-package.

Provide the source-code used to build those binaries or describe a way to get the identical source-code from upstream. The upstream source has moved along and its trunk "might" not be usable.

Updated to the latest versions of the upstream packages.

Build the needed jar-files during the build-process of xtreemfs
or put the binaries and its source into separate archives.

I would prefer separate source-packages without binaries but with makefiles. This would make syncing with upstream easier. What version of the product are you using? On what operating system? 1.2.3

I couldn't agree more but unfortunately XtreemFS developers ignore even more serious issue with OpenDMK dependency which is non-free and unmaintained since 2007, see #309.

As part of my evaluation of XtreemFS I prepared updated packaging where many bundled JARs were ripped-off (as per Debian policy) but not all of them. I've dumped my draft packaging to
where I'm going to leave it (it's too much for pull request).
It is already much better than sloppy upstream packaging but still unfinished...
