You cannot create remote repos with native git and also not with EGit. It depends on the git server you are using on how to create new repos.

Can you please elaborate on what is the process to create the Remote repository using JGit.

We are in the process of migrating from current SVN to new GITHub.

As part of automation we were creating a new repository remotely on SVN.
We are trying to do the same using Github now using JGit, but not able to.

Your help is greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance.

As Christian said, creation of a new Git repository on a remote system isn't standardised and
depends on the specific API provided by the git server you are using. Hence JGit doesn't support that.

If you want to create a repository in Github use their REST API endpoint [1] for that.

The EGit Mylyn github connector provides a Java client for calling the github REST API,
you may find this library in the Eclipse Maven repository hosted on repo.eclipse.org [1].

If you are using Maven add the following dependency
<dependency>
<groupId>org.eclipse.mylyn.github</groupId>
<artifactId>org.eclipse.egit.github.core</artifactId>
<version>4.2.0.201601211800-r</version>
</dependency>

Use can use org.eclipse.egit.github.core.service.RepositoryService.createRepository() to create a repository.
