I have made a Java application for Ubuntu in NetBeans and would like to submit it to the Ubuntu Software Center. But the problem is, when I get the upload form, they ask to choose a file. So what do I do now? (NetBeans projects are in a folder and not a file).

So what exactly do I have to upload? Do I just ZIP it and upload? Please help.
