But as to my knowledge, according to Fedora packaging policy the source code must be completely compiled on Fedora infrastructure and each library must become a separate package. For very large and complex Java programs like Wildfly, this is an enormous amount of work and also fits poorly with the Java build system. In this respect, building a rpm is theoretically possible, but practically not feasible with the available resources. There was an attempt a few years ago, but it was not completed as to my knowledge.

Note that while Wildfly *was* packaging in Fedora, it no longer is
because it amounted to more than one person's full time job to keep it
and its dependencies updated and working in Fedora. For some history,
