IzPack is published under the terms of the Apache Software License, Version 2.0, meaning that you can adapt it to your needs with very minimal constraints. Because they use the Git distributed source code manager, it is easy for you to maintain your own custom changes against their upstream versions.
It has been successfuly running on Windows XP / Vista / 7 / 2003 / 2000, Mac OS X, Solaris, Linux and *BSD. You can package once, and deploy the very same installer to many platforms!
IzPack is highly customizable, you can create your installers the way you want, not the way they thought it should be.
They support Windows shortcuts, but this is optional. They support FreeDesktop-compliant X11 window manager and desktop environments. But this is optional. They support interaction with the Windows registry (e.g., linking files with applications, add an uninstallation link in the add / remove program settings, …), but… this is optional. They have utilities for wrapping an installer inside a Windows self-extracting executable or a Mac OS X application bundle. Oh and this is optional too!
They provide direct integration with Apache Ant and Maven. IzPack itself is built with Maven, and the resulting artefacts are published to Maven Central.
Installing is important… but so is uninstalling! The IzPack uninstaller removes all the mess that you installed. Oh and it won’t necessarily show up in French!
Starting from IzPack 4.3.0, they have a support for console installations (manual ar automated). This works locally and remotely (e.g., through a SSH connection). You can also record an installation on one machine, then replay it on many other machines.
Get the user to input some data
Get data from users, then reuse it to customize your installation.
IzPack comes bundled with many translations. You can easily add new ones. Customizing resources (e.g., the text of your license agreement depending on the locale) is also very easy.
Variables can be defined and collected from several places. You can then use the variables to customize panels, installation resources, scripts, installed files, … whatever you like!
