Native Image

Distributions of this type provide a platform specific native binary, as a consequence you must specify a platform value for each one of their artifacts.

Distributions of this type conform to the following file structure:

└── bin
    └── executable

Creating a Distribution

Native image binaries can be created in many ways. Frameworks such as Micronaut, Quarkus, and Helidon provide Maven and Gradle plugins that can create such binaries. The distribution should be packages as a Zip or Tar. The archive must contain a root entry, typically following the name of the archive, thus if the archive is named the root entry should be app-1.2.3.


Alternatively, you may also configure a Native Image assembler.
