      Description

      One of the biggest problems with Java desktop applications is ease of installation.

      Like the Maven Source Control Management Plug-in can handle CVS and others, a general plugin should be created to the be able to plug in:

      • Windows installer through NSIS
      • Windows installer through InstallAnywhere
      • Linux installer through RPM (similar plugin available at SF)
      • MacOs installer through ?
        ...

      Shortcuts should be defined at a general level (in an xml file?), maybe with customization for each installer. A general goal generates all the installers it can.

        Also, for now the nsis plugin can generate only 1 installer.
        If you want want one with and one without JVM, that won't work.

        This installer plugin should be able to output multiple of many types anyway.
