Helloworld in Java (JAVA_BINARY)

The https://github.com/jreleaser/helloworld-java-bin repository shows how to configure GitHub Actions and JReleaser to:

  • compile a helloworld app

  • assemble a zip distributions with JReleaser

  • create rolling early-access releases with JReleaser on every push to main branch

There are two modes for packaging this application: classpath & modulepath.


  1. ./mvnw verify

  2. jreleaser assemble


  1. ./mvnw verify

  2. jreleaser assemble --config-file jreleaser-modules.yml

In both cases the assembled archive is placed at out/jreleaser/assemble/helloworld/java-archive.
