Create Window Installer For Java Application using Freeware

There are two steps:

1)     In order to use open source, I have to use Lauch4J to wrap Java applications distributed as jars in lightweight Windows native executable. For example, Lauch4J will create BulkExport.exe based on BulkExport.jar. JSmooth is also a good tool, but is little out of date and we also need to write the ANT script. Lauch4J is strictly a GUI tool.

2)     Use Advanced Installer. This is a unified package containing the complete Advanced Installer application, which includes Freeware, ProfessionalFor JavaEnterprise, and Architect. Freeware features can be accessed at any time by creating a project of type “Simple”

We create a Simple project packing it into MSI window installer file, such as BulkExport.msi

    Thanks for your sharing firstly, it’s lucky to find this free resource. I want to create msi in java application, does this one support? or any better ideas? Any help will be appreciated.

  2. You should support as long as the the Java Main Application is packaged in the Jar file format.
