Just interested in why you find installing a jar file so problematic.
Given it is essentially just a zip archive, how is installing a jar file
and keeping it up-to-date any different from installing any binary
package? Even when you clone a repository and build from sources, you
still have to pull updates and rebuild. Is their something fundamentally
different with jar or is it simply a different build system and the
discomfort is due to it being less familiar?
