IzPack-powered GlassFish installer

IzPack installer for GlassFish

There's been some recent activity around the GlassFish install experience lately and that's a good thing (tm).

Julien Ponge, GlassFish Community member and creator of IzPack has announced an IzPack-based GlassFish installer. This is a single jar installer (around 80M) containing everything for Windows, Mac and Linux. Solaris should follow. The jar is created using the "official" GlassFish installer binaries and a Ruby script to compute the platform-specific files and generate the IzPack XML descriptor.

The bits will soon be available as well as "source code of the scripts and IzPack-specific files needed to generate the installer under a liberal MIT-style license". Thanks Julien!
