# Debian packages in Java

This library provides an Ant task and a Maven plugin to create Debian packages
from Java builds in a truly cross platform manner. Build your Debian packages
on any platform that has Java support. Windows, Linux, OS X - it doesn't require
additional native tools installed.

Check the documentation on how to use it with [Maven](http://github.com/tcurdt/jdeb/blob/master/docs/maven.md)
or [Ant](http://github.com/tcurdt/jdeb/blob/master/docs/ant.md). Especially don't forget to check out the
[examples](http://github.com/tcurdt/jdeb/blob/master/src/examples/). Current
[javadocs](http://tcurdt.github.com/jdeb/release/1.6/apidocs/) and a source
[xref](http://tcurdt.github.com/jdeb/release/1.6/xref/) is also available.


## Where to get it

The jars are available in the [Maven central repository](http://repo1.maven.org/maven2/org/vafer/jdeb/).

If you feel adventurous or want to help out feel free to get the latest code
[via git](http://github.com/tcurdt/jdeb/tree/master).

    git clone git://github.com/tcurdt/jdeb.git

## Working towards jdeb 2.0

Over the years jdeb has grown more and more powerful - but also got more complex. In order to simplify the usage and apply what we have learned we are taking a step back. If you want to help to shape the usage of jdeb 2.0 feel free to contribute to the [planning](https://github.com/tcurdt/jdeb/issues/195).
