IzPack is an installers generator for the Java platform. It
produces lightweight installers that can be run on any operating
system where a Java virtual machine is available. Depending on
the operating system, it can be launched by a double-click or a
simple 'java -jar installer.jar' on a shell. The most common use
is to distribute applications for the Java platform, but you can
also use it for other kinds of projects. The main benefit of
IzPack is that it provides a clean and unique way of distributing
a project to users using different operating systems. IzPack is
reported to run on :
* Unix-like systems, mostly Linux and BSD
* MacOS X
* Windows variants
A big care has been put in making IzPack as small as possible in
order to reduce the weight of IzPack itself in the final installer
archive. Also, IzPack has been designed around modularity and
flexibility. As a consequence, you are able to specify how your
installer should be by selecting the panels that you want to show
to the final user. Sometimes there are even several panels for the
same usage so that you can pick the one that suits the best your
needs. If ever you don't find your way through the available panels,
you can still develop your own ones with the nice and easy IzPack
API. There's even an embedded XML parser !
