One option is to create a shell script named something like 'jpd' with contents:
java -jar /usr/share/java/jpartialdownloader/jpd.jar $@

and copy that into /usr/bin/ in the PKGBUILD.

Sometimes you have to do things yourself.

By the way, you might want to look into using 'java-environment' or
'java-runtime' for your depends instead of 'openjdk6'.  I'm not sure
which is correct.
