InstallAnywhere appears to be very good. If you can assume that your users will have a JVM installed, an open source alternative is IZPack. LiftOff is another open source initiative, but it looks less mature yet.

No doubt you can. The question is, what is the best way to go about it, and how much work would you have to do in scripting it, perhaps writing a little app to generate configuration files and so forth? I have no idea. I've never had any occasion to use InstallAnywhere in anger.
