Redline is a pure Java library for manipulating RPM Package Manager packages. Currently the project supports reading and creating packages and has an included Ant task useful for integration with build systems. Support for package signatures will be added in a future release.

How to use Redline


Downloads are hosted at both the Google Code Redline downloads page and at the GitHub Redline downloads page.

Source Code

Please note that the source distribution build script requires Maven 2 or later. The bundle binary distribution packages all required dependencies in one distributable JAR and contains all classes needed to use Redline in an Ant build script.

Note: The source control repository has been switched to Git.

Source code is available from our GitHub repostory.
