Convert .jar to .deb package
you can create a DEB from .jar file.
You have to add following code to your pom.xml file
<build> <groupId>org.test</groupId> <artifactId>some-lib</artifactId> <version>1.0</version> <plugins> ... <plugin> <groupId>org.codehaus.mojo</groupId> <artifactId>deb-maven-plugin</artifactId> <configuration> <description>A test project</description> <maintainer>Tim OBrien <[email protected]></maintainer> <section>libs</section> <priority>optional</priority> <architecture>all</architecture> </configuration> <executions> <execution> <goals> <goal>deb</goal> </goals> </execution> </executions> </plugin> ... </plugins> </build>
and after that running
will gives your a .DEB file.

Admin about 9 yearsOk then consider editing your question to clarify what you are asking. On a side note, why do you want to make an installer for a java program ? One of the strong side about this language is that it is cross platform. If you keep your jar file, it could be run on either windows, ubuntu, or OSX, without any modification
Admin about 9 yearsI would say that your question mainly refers to packaging: having a jar file is just an element of the package. So, consider using "packaging" keyword for looking into this site, for example: askubuntu.com/questions/1345/…
