So I have a Java application, both command-line and GUI, that I would like to send to user and have the users deploy the application. I am looking at install tools but is there some place documented best practices for deploying Java applications.

1) I use several different tools such as log4j, httpclient, etc and they all have jar files that need to be deployed with the application. Should be separated out in a separate library directory or embedded in my jar file? What is the best approach to manage these for the future and make sure I have documented their inclusion and copyrights?

2) Should have the installer install JRE or check that the user has installed an appropriate JRE?

I know I am probably touching the tip of the iceberg here but thought this would get me started by asking a couple of questions. Also, I hope this is the a good place to ask them.

Thanks,
Mike
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
