This question already has an answer here:

I just came across an article regarding submitting app to Ubuntu Software Center

I'm currently maintaining a open source stock market software. I would say around 80% are Windows users, although the software itself can be executed in Linux too.

I would like to increase adoption of Linux users. Hence, distributing the software in most popular Linux distro will definitely help.

I was wondering, whether a pure Java written software will be accepted in Ubuntu Software Center? It requires JRE6 and above.

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

Not sure if this is the same thing but you might want to read this.… – madharuhi Mar 10 '14 at 7:15

Yep, there's no reason why not. Your package will just depend on JRE, so when installing your software, the USC will automatically install Java as well should it be missing.
