JReleaser is a release automation tool. Its goal is to simplify creating releases and publishing artifacts to multiple package managers while providing customizable options. However, you may use it with projects that do not require publishing binary assets. You may use it to create Git releases (tag, changelog, assets), announce releases, create additional binaries and files to be published via package managers. JReleaser supports any kind of project regardless of its source language (Java, Node, Rust, Perl, Python, etc), although it provides additional benefits to Java based projects.
JReleaser takes inputs from popular builds tools (Apache Ant, Apache Maven, Gradle, Cargo, NPM, etc) such as JAR files, binary distributions
.tar), JLink images, or any other file that you’d like to publish as a Git release on popular Git services
such as GitHub, GitLab, or Gitea. Distribution files can additionally be published to be consumed by popular package managers
as Homebrew, Snapcraft, Scoop, or get ready to be launched via JBang. Releases may be announced in a variety of channels such
as Twitter, Zulip, Sdkman, and others. Have a look at the listed integrations.
A release process can be customized with a
jreleaser.[yml|toml|json] file if using the
CLI or Apache Ant options, or
direct DSL configuration inside a
pom.xml ( Apache Maven) or
build.gradle ( Gradle) file.
Once setup, you can create a new release by invoking the
full-release command or any other commands described in the
Every step of the release process is configurable. Inputs may be parameterized externally. Several input files may be provided as templates.
You can run JReleaser at your local development machine or at any of the supported CI/CD services.
