GlassFish v2.1 and v3 community IzPack installers

Julien Ponge is at it again with a set of New Installers for both GlassFish v2.1 and v3 prelude. These are single-file installers with OS-specific features such as the new privileges elevation on Windows Vista & 7. They are based on a preview of IzPack 4.2.1 which is set to be released any day now in a final version.

GlassFish Update Center bootstrapping is also a nice touch for these new installers. Check out the source code if you're interested in how Julien did all this.

While we're on the topic of Julien, you may be interested in his recent interview about teaching Java EE with GlassFish.
