Ubuntu – How to submit .jar file to the ubuntu software center


I am writing an app using JAVA Swing for all platforms.
After that I want to add this app to Ubuntu Software Center for free Is it possible?

My app is just one *.jar file, its helping to play card games.

I dont know Python language and saying the truth – dont want to learn it now.

What should I do to be able to submit my app?

Before uploading to ubuntu software center here is a guide for packing .jar into deb, It is not necessary to package your application before submitting to ubuntu software center , you can directly upload *.jar if it is closed source app , you should provide source code if it is an open source project. Canonical will package it for you
