Creating *.rpm file based on *.deb file

I develop primarily in Windows/Mac environment with limited knowledge on Linux. To package my eclipse RCP project, I created 2 deb files (one 64bit and another 32bit) in Ubuntu 64bit in the virtual box. I tested these 2 deb files in 64bit and 32bit ubuntu and they worked.

Now, I want to create the RPM files for these 2 deb files. Do I use alien to convert these deb files to rpm files? Is that a preferred way? Or is there a better way to handle this?

Thanks much.

alien is terribly hacky when it works, and useless when it doesn't. It's better to learn how to build a RPM properly.
