Hello!
I have some problems with the way to deploy my Java application. One is to lanch my J2SE application with .exe file. I overcame this problem by creating .exe file which lanches javaw in different process. Another problem is how to install my application on user's PC. The install process should be easy to the user and must not puzzles him with questions like "Do you have JVM 1.5 or greater on your PC?" So the rulles of installations are:
1. There must be single file (installation package)
2. Check if there is JVM 1.5 or greater on user's PC then proceed to application install, else install JVM first
3. JVM installation should proceed without any technical questions to the user (except JVM directory may be )

So the questions are: How to build installation package with free tools and how to build in JVM installation to this package?
Thank you.

Launch4J is probably also interesting.
