Re: [ajug-members]: open source software install tool?
I've had very good success with InstallAnywhere 5.5.x
from Zero G - which you mentioned. This edition is
still free and quite capable. It gives you the option
to package the JRE as part of your deployment; and you
can have your app deploy via browser. The
installation is quite professional.
