This is essentially more than help...I am wanting to pay someone for their expertise in doing plugins to take my java server app (just needs a JRE or JDK, no app server) and having a PBI for it. I expect it to be in a Jail, with java, and running "java -jar app.jar" effectively.

I have looked around and around at other samples, and so on and keep going in circles as to what needs to be done. I am a java developer, which makes this a bit foreign to me. I have seen other threads referencing a sample project, but that gets into ports which I don't think is really needed for this? I saw FreeNAS docs indicating that the process will be getting easier...did it? I didn't find references tot eh easier method though...

If there are any clear guides I have missed, I am happy to entertain reading them and seeing if its something I can do. Just have not had any good luck so far. I'm willing to pay for this, as I suspect this might be a lot of work? (I can install java PBI, and unzip my app, and run it, easy.) But getting the whole process down is what I am having trouble with.

Nope. Best bet is to create a jail and install what you need into it.

Ok, but then how do I turn that into a PBI that can be distributed? The ultimate end goal it to get a PBI that can be distributed with FreeNAS for anyone that wants to install it. We don't want to rely on instructions for people to go create a jail, install java, then unzip our app, and run it. Trying to avoid that if possible...
