  Description     : Java framework for invoking user-level tasks
 This package provides the necessary infrastructure for writing
 tasks that do things for users, along the same lines as ADAM A-tasks.
 At the moment all the necessary machinery is provided for invoking
 tasks from the command line in a way that looks ADAM-like,
 but it is designed so that, for instance, a GUI-style invoker
 could be written to invoke the same tasks.

The package will be maintained by the Debian Astro team. It is part of
the effort to package the Virtual Observatory Java tools from Starlink.

A git repository will be created at


The package depends on the creation of starjava-util.
