Hi All,

I am curious to know, in which language/technology are java installer UI screens created. Is it in java swings or some other language. We are working on installer and want to create those flaunting UIs. Kindly help.

Regards,
Nimish

If you're interested just in Windows systems, have a look at MakeMSI. I've used it for my Visual Basic projects. It produces .msi (Windows Installer) files. Though there is quite a lot to learn, if you start with the sample projects, you'll be probably able to create your first installer in a few hours. The creator has command-line interface, which means it can be part of an automated build process.

Although Java app setups can doubtless be created with MakeMSI, it does not have specific support for Java, as far as I know. Maybe there are better alternatives for Java around.

Also, our installer is a cross platform installer. Installer for windows as well as unix, developed in java.
