InstallAnywhere had a free product, called the 'NOW' version.
It was limited in a few ways, but generally a very nice, capable
installer product. It gives options for bundling a VM or not,
supports Windows, UNIX/Linux, OS/X. I create an IA project, and
version control it like anything else. Then I build my java
project with Ant to the point of a jar file. Then I fire up IA,
and build the installers.
I'm currently using the 5.5 version. On a recent visit to their
web site, I didn't see the 'NOW' version someplace obvious, so
I'm not sure if they still have a free version. Worth a look
