Slackware jdk packages

I'm a new user to Slackware (Slax) but not Linux. I currently run
Debian. I am however new to Slackware's packaging system. Basically,
I'm looking for a good resource on how to build my own Slackware
packages. For me to do useful things on a key drive;) I need to create
a JDK package and a NetBeans package. From what I can gather, the
packages are some sort of compressed file, that stays compressed on the
system until needed?
I *think* that if I can wrestle these into slackware packages, then I
can modify them to fit on my Slax liveCD (USB). I've checked Slax's
forums. There's a mention that someone's done it for JDK 1.5 (but no
mention how) and I'd like to know how so I can build packages for the
JDK 1.6 mustang releases.
Hopefully, I can build Slackware packages using a Debian system;)
Thanks for any help.
