Dear All,

Did anybody have an idea regarding how to install and uninstall an application/exe from a java program?

Installation may be done in a local or remote machine?


Thanks in Advance

Hi
as far as I know installation in windows consists putting application file in some paths,
putting some shortcuts on the desktop,etc and
writing some entries in the registry.
I think you'll have problems only in the 3rd part , maybe you should use a native method

If you are working within well known linux environment (let's say within particular distribution) it would be the best to use it's packaging system.

If you are working with RPM related system you can use ant for building RPMs (you are still dependent on a software thou).

This way you will keep your system tidy - by using packages.

Hope this helps
