HI..
I created a java web application..
And i want to create one exe file..
So clicking on that exe file should ask for installation process..
Is there any software tool available for creating the installable file for java web application..
Thanks..

Welcome to JavaRanch.

The usual way to distribute web apps would be to create a "war" file. What would having an installer add that you can't achieve with a war file?

The product I work for actually has an "Automatic Installer" which is basically an Install Shield app that deploys our webapp into Websphere after asking a few questions. It has a windows batch file that issues wsadmin commands in jacl to deploy the application. It's kinda pointless in my opinion but some of our customers like it, especially those who have legacy system admins who are pretending to be Websphere Admins. But depending on your needs, our solution is probably more hassle than it is worth in the end.
