We're developing an Eclipse plugin named SpotBugs Eclipse Plugin.
Currently we do not sign our jar file, so user always got alert from Eclipse. Here is the related GitHub issue:

https://github.com/spotbugs/spotbugs/issues/779

In my understanding based on https://wiki.eclipse.org/JAR_Signing , we need to purchase domain and certification to sign jar.
But we have no sponsor, I want to know how we can sign our jar file with less cost. So let me ask following questions:

  1. Can we use GPG or other solutions to sign?
  2. Is there any way to sign jar without original domain?
  3. Can we use certificate issued by Let's Encrypt?


Thanks in advance!
