    Lightbulb JAR to DEB

    Hello, i wanna package JAR to DEB. I am interested in Ubuntu Packaging but still confused in.

    If I have a JAR, does it need any shell script included in the DEB later? Can somebody give me simple explanation? I follow this tutorial: http://blog.noizeramp.com/2005/08/31...other-debians/ but I confused for what the myapp.sh is.

    In the core, I want this DEB later, can act like anoteher DEB packaged in Ubuntu. It can install app, place icon in menu, show description in USC, and can track dependency. How can I create it?

    If I should create a shell script, what I should write in the script file? I have read the Ubuntu and Debian Packaging Guide, but i am confused. I am newbie but curious here

    Thank you...

    Re: JAR to DEB

    myapp.sh is a small wrapper script that invokes the JAR. According to Debian policy, Java applications should behave as ordinary binaries. For your application, the script obviously will be named differently. Please do not append .sh extension to it, see Debian policy 10.4

    Have a look at Debian Java policy.

    The Maven 2 DEB Plugin can be used to produce a Debian package from any project that can be packaged as a JAR. Debian packages can be used on most Debian-based Linux Disributions including Ubuntu.
    Please mark your thread as solved if you get a satisfactory response.

    Re: JAR to DEB

    Hello slickymaster,

    I've given a page: http://blog.noizeramp.com/2005/08/31...other-debians/ by my friend in #ubuntu-indonesia IRC channel. I follow that, and works. By adding a complete mirror of Lintian's Tags pages, I have created my first DEB in my life. Surely, I have to borrow existing DEB in my /var archives that comes from official repo (high quality DEB) so my DEB actually same with that DEB in directory structure or configuration files It is the easiest way for learning Ubuntu/Debian Packaging for me... Just imitate any existing DEB Use archive manager for open DEB contents.

    I've installed VirtualBox 2 days ago and installed Maverick and Precise there. I tried to install my DEB on both OS, and works! Fine! I am so happy. Thank you...

    But my DEB is still need some improvements Lintian says there is still many warnings (but no error). Thank you.

    So, the solution is following that page and have Lintian pages
