Windows 8 Store / Windows 10 Store

To publish the app itself, no, not right now.  The core issue is that the Java Runtime is not a WinRT/Win10 app but is still a win32 app, and they don’t publish those in their store.  Since that is not my area of expertise, I don’t know about plans relating to WinRT/Win10 APIs.  The core OpenJDK lists may be a better place to float that question.  But even then, that is just the first step.

The best you can do is get a store page and publish a link that holds your installer.  That’s what lots of Win32 apps do currently.  This also contributes to why the Windows App Store is relatively unsuccessful compared to other app stores. (the fact there are viable non-app store alternatives is the biggest issue IMHO).
