thanks for all the help tom + john. this might be a little out of scope of pants in particular, but assume i'm a complete rube when it comes to deploying java packages. i have a complicated service binary that depends on a bunch of 3rdparty jars. i would like to put this on a *nix server somewhere and run it. is the best practices to use
, bundle it all as a jar with other jars inside it, and deploy that to my servers?
