"It might be easier to answer that by listing what tools *are* described in the book:

Ant (not Maven)
CVS (not Subversion, though the commands are very similar)
CruiseControl
Java Web Start
JUnit
log4j
NSIS installer
RSS
Simple shell scripts and one Ruby script"

I think that refers to the Null Soft Install System. It is a open source project that will deploy a simple application and with an editor, you can make it do some neat things. I intend to use it because it allows you to present the user with multiple options of your choice. Search for Null Soft Install System for more details.

Nullsoft Scriptable Install System. Bear in mind that it creates installers for Windows only.

If you've ever installed Tomcat on Windows, then you've used the NSIS (Nullsoft Scriptable Install System) installer. I like it for Windows installation/uninstallation because it's scriptable, which means you can add custom steps relatively easily. I also like it because it's free. :-)

In terms of how to use NSIS, I dedicate seven pages of the book to writing an NSIS script that creates an executable installer, with a custom page in the install wizard, for the example application.

The Tomcat project does not provide a Linux installer for Tomcat. However, if you want to make a graphical installer for your application for Linux, there are some free and commercial tools available.

A UNIX (linux, OS X) installer for Tomcat isn't really necessary. In fact. neither is the Windows installer. You can just unpack the zip (or tar) file and you are pretty much good to go.
