Yes, I use it already and often :)

I have a prototype package running here. But jdownloader has a update function 
and overwrite classes/jars nearly every day with updates. So IMHO it is not 
to handle as a "real" rpm-package. 

It copies over even all the windows files (exe and bat) and all needed jars, 
even if they are present i other directories (/usr/share/java).

As long as this behaviour is not controlable, a central installation is not 
possible or the installation directory must be writable by the user.

So my advice install it locally and be happy with this nice program.
