I'm building a .deb file for an executable jar I've built for myself. I got a .deb built and installed my program to
As I have a jar I now had an executable file called
/usr/bin/mylovelyprogram.jar. I noticed that no other files in the directory had an extension.
Now, I know that having an extension or not doesn't matter, but it did bother me since my program stood out. I wondered if it was usual to rename packaged executable
jars such that they no longer have an extension? Or, if there was some other standard e.g. putting the jar somewhere else and using a symlink? I'd like to conform to existing standards where possible, mainly so I do not fall into bad habits if I ever decide to distribute my program.
