You would need to package t as a RPM package. Once you create a RPM
installation is trivial. Be sure the check the packaging guidelines of
JAVA software as a RPM package here [1].

If it is a GUI/Desktop application then you can add it to your
respective desktop's start-up applications list.

What do you mean by a launcher?
If it is a system service, then you create an init script.
If you want a shortcut icon somewhere on the applications menu /
desktop, you can create a shortcut icon ( a .desktop file ) as
described in [2].
