JAR Packaging to DEB

Postby Malsasa on Fri Feb 15, 2013 3:17 am

Hello, it's my curiosity about packaging in DEB...

If I have a JAR application, 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/pa ... r-debians/ but I confused for what the myapp.sh is.

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 :oops:

Thank you...

When I entered the search terms "linux program java" into a search engine I got nearly 10 million results. Funnily enough I didn't read them all, but this one came very near the top, does it help?

I really know very little about packaging or programming, but it looks to me that in your tutorial they are using a Java program to call a shell script whereas on the example above they 'build in' the required command to the java program in step 5.

But like I say, I really don't know what I am talking about in this subject. Good luck with it anyway.
