Auto Installer for Java SWING application

We have a SWING based java application, The application is using MySQL as data base.

Now, How can we develop a auto installer for the whole application, so that a single click would install the database and associated tables, and all Java programs in the client machine.

Any ideas would be greatly appriciated.

Thanks

Long time back I had used one commercial tool called as 'excelsior'. This tool provides lot of other things like making your application as single exe including and excluding JRE along with packaging and setup files. This tool also optimizes your source code in some way using JIT compiler and application behaves like a Windows application.

If you want you can try it..

If it's a Windows app, you can use InnoSetup as your setup installer and Launch4J to create an windows executable.

dushanta, don't hijack this thread and create your own thread as well. Let's stick to the other one.
