IzPack - Cross-platform Installer
IzPack is a one-stop solution for packaging, distributing and deploying applications. It is fully cross-platform and generates a single installer. As such, it is an alternative to native solutions such as platform-specific installers and package managers. IzPack-generated installers only require a Java virtual machine to run.
- Native OS integration: Windows shortcuts, Freedesktop.org compliant X11 window, Windows registry
- Build integration with Apache Ant
- Uninstaller removes all the mess that you installed
- Support for console installations (manual ar automated). This works locally and remotely (via SSH)
- Record an installation on one machine, then replay it on many other machines
- Get data from users, to customize your installation
- Package once, and deploy the very same installer to many platforms
