There is a number of built-in conditions which are statically pre-set on launching the installation and which can be only referenced by their ID:

  • izpack.windowsinstall
    True if the current OS is (any) Windows.
  • izpack.windowsinstall.xp
    True if the current OS is Windows XP.
  • izpack.windowsinstall.2003
    True if the current OS is Windows Server 2003.
  • izpack.windowsinstall.vista
    True if the current OS is Windows Vista.
  • izpack.windowsinstall.7
    True if the current OS is Windows 7.
  • izpack.windowsinstall.8
    True if the current OS is Windows 8.
  • izpack.macinstall
    True if the current OS is Mac OS X.
  • izpack.linuxinstall
    True if the current OS is (any) Linux.
  • izpack.solarisinstall
    True if the current OS is (any) Solaris.
  • izpack.solarisinstall.x86
    True if the current OS is (any) Solaris x86.
  • izpack.solarisinstall.sparc
    True if the current OS is (any) Solaris Sparc.

Further, IzPack automatically sets reserved conditions depending on the packs selected by the user or an unattended installation (auto-install.xml) to be installed:

  • izpack.selected.<packname>

where <packname> is the name attribute of the according pack. If the appropriate pack <pack name="..."> defined in the installation description is selected, the condition validates true. Packs can be selected either in unattended installations by replaying a record of a previous installation (auto-install.xml) or interactively by the user by means of PacksPanel or its derivates, ImgPacksPanel or TreePacksPanel.
