I have created a plugin to build Mac OSX .app applications here: https://code.google.com/p/gradle-macappbundle/
Version 2.0 of the macappbundle plugin was released today.
Available on mavenCentral as edu.sc.seis.gradle:macappbundle:2.0.0
Apple or Oracle jvm (and corresponding styles of Info.plist)
bundling the Oracle JRE in the app
zip file as alternative for dmg
setting a “copy it here” background image and link to /Applications in the dmg for easy user install
Comments welcome, Philip
This is great! I’ll be giving this a try soon.
