I am unclear about what you are trying to accomplish.

The code seems OK to me (I only read it, I didn't run it). It produces
a commit that is not attached to any branch.

If you wanted to update a branch, you should use the CommitCommand
available from a Git object's commit() method. Or start digging into
the low level UpdateRef stuff yourself. CommitBuilder is a low-level
object, not a higher level API object.
