Stocking the shelves of the Java Store

In a physical store, the
attractiveness of the shelf display masks what is usually a highly
complex set of processes by which the products arrive on the shelves.
How optimized these processes are can make
or break a store.

Peeking into the backend Warehouse
of the Java Store, Bernard
Traversant walks
you through the process by which Java and JavaFX developers can submit
their apps. From attaching all sorts of descriptive information
about the application that the store will need (like export licenses,
platform version) or that the shelf display will
need (description of the application, icons, and, ultimately, the
price you set) to the requirement of packaging the application as a single JAR
(which NetBeans
6.7.1 handily meets) its all
covered here.
