Writing an installation description

In order to tell the compiler what, how and where to install an application there is the need to have at least an installation description file, which is processed by the IzPack compiler to create a setup.

For a more detailed description of this file see Writing Installation Descriptions.

Compiling the installation description

The compiler does read the installation description and transforms the artifacts into the runable installer. The compiler can be invoked from command line, by maven or by ant.

  1. DCP Setup Maker is a powerful GUI tool using the IzPack project. It is built with Apache Pivot and helps you get all the packs you need, organize them with all necessary settings to write the install xml code, and some bat commands for you, then launches the izpack compiler to create an installer for your application.
