Hi Ranchers...

I have created a simple Java Application using Swing. I Need to Package it in an RPM file so that it can be installed properly. The generated rpm file will only place my jar file and some other files in appripriate places( & do nothing else).

Can someone help me out with how to do this.

I Do realise that this is not a typical java ralated problem, But i believe some of the fellow ranchers would have come across this problem and might be able to help... However, i apologize, if this is not the right place to post this problem...

Thanks in advance...

Regards,
Parth

An RPM file is an installation file for Linux that you can install with the Red Hat Package Manager, right?

It might be a better idea to ask this question in a Linux forum. Does your Linux also come with a tool to make RPM files? Does that tool come with documentation?

Yes RPM file is an installation file for Linux. And Linux does come with a tool called rpmbuild, that can be used to create rpms. However, i could not find documentation to create rpms for a s/w written in java(neither on linux nor on the net).

But, it makes sense that i post this particular question in a Linux Forum...
Thanks anyways...
