Guys, this will be a true newbie question, sorry. I’ve been reading wiki for hours, and still have no idea where to start from.
Background: I’m not a pro, but just an after-hours coder, and so far I have some experience with Android / Android Wear apps only. However, after almost 3 years of coding for the Play Store, I find it a little bit boring and disappointing, so decided to learn something new. I took the code of a game I had written for Android (this was a clone of what I had written in 1992 for 8-bit computers), and re-wrote it in JavaFX.
Problem: I have no idea on how to distribute the working .jar file on Linux at all, and on Arch specifically. If it comes to Windows executable, I just used launch4j, and it builds the .exe to my taste in seconds. If I remember well, on Debian-based distribution it’s possible to download a .deb package (still I don’t know how to build it), and just click to install.
Question: Could anyone tell me which steps I should take to distribute the game on Arch-based distro? The .jar file has all resources bundled inside, and needs just the
java-runtime (probably only Oracle jre will do, but it seems to be included), and
I’ll appreciate any help.
