I think that refers to the Null Soft Install System. It is a open source project that will deploy a simple application and with an editor, you can make it do some neat things. I intend to use it because it allows you to present the user with multiple options of your choice. Search for Null Soft Install System for more details.

If you've ever installed Tomcat on Windows, then you've used the NSIS (Nullsoft Scriptable Install System) installer. I like it for Windows installation/uninstallation because it's scriptable, which means you can add custom steps relatively easily. I also like it because it's free. :-)

The Tomcat project does not provide a Linux installer for Tomcat. However, if you want to make a graphical installer for your application for Linux, there are some free and commercial tools available. [ September 23, 2004: Message edited by: Lasse Koskela ]
A UNIX (linux, OS X) installer for Tomcat isn't really necessary. In fact. neither is the Windows installer. You can just unpack the zip (or tar) file and you are pretty much good to go. [ September 23, 2004: Message edited by: Bear Bibeault ]
