Description: Install4j is a Java installer builder. This technology generates native installers and application launchers for Java applications. Install4j includes an Integrated Development Environment (IDE) that guides users through the process of gathering information and building an installer. This technology allows users to configure the screen flow of installers and uninstallers and provides for the creation and customization of screens and actions within the installer. Install4j also allows for pre-packaged Java Runtime Environment (JRE) bundles to be integrated into installers. Additionally, this technology includes several customizable templates for auto-updaters.

Install4j is available in two editions, the Multi-Platform Edition and the Windows Edition. The Multi-Platform Edition is full featured and allows for the creation of media files for all mainstream platforms. The Windows Edition includes all the base functionality but only allows for the creation of Windows Installer and Windows Archive media file types. The scope of this entry is for both editions.

This technology does not make use of a database, as files generated by this technology are stored to the user`s local drive.
