App-Updater from git repo

I’d like to make an auto updater for my (Swing based) Java Applications, which automatically downloads the newest version from a git repository and updates itself.

Can you give me some links or explanations?

    For deploying Java desktop apps., the best option is usually to install the app. using Java Web Start. JWS works on Windows, OS X & *nix & supports auto-update.
