to figure out the DEB packaging in the context of a Java application.  I'll read on more and
will stay in touch.

Actually there's a lot of ambiguity in packaging that arise given Java's unique properties
as a compiled, architecture independent platform. I wouldn't recommend *starting* your debian
packaging journey with java. Maybe find a nice C program first. ;)

You're probably better off using a configuration management system such as puppet, chef, or
cfengine to.. well.. manage your configuration.
