I was digging around for some good Java installers; that is, programs that can bundle up my Java program and allow them to be installed by end users easily, optionally bundling (or jit downloading+installing) the JRE. I found a few that look promising:
- http://0install.net/ Free
- http://www.advancedinstaller.com/ $399/developer
- http://installbuilder.bitrock.com/ $1995/developer; discounted for small businesses (<5 people); free for open-source
There are also other interesting features, such as pushing updates to users, that are supported by all three tools. At some point one will want to handle licenses and stuff like that, but...not at this price point.
