I have been using the jpackager that Johan Vos backported for OpenJDK 11.
For this I have some points of improvement I would like to mention.
The control file for debian package does not set correct description
--description This is a Test Application
The RPM gets it correctly
Summary : test
This is a Test Application
Category is not set on either DEB or RPM
Category or group of the application.
The jpackager command line should have the flag --release in addition to
--version. The only way to set a different release than "1" is to supply a
custom spec file for RPM and control file for DEB.
