Installer with supporting applications

Hi All,
I want to create an installer for my java desktop application which should also be able to install
some supporting application such as MySQL server and some more along with my application.
I have checked few solutions on net but they are creating installer only for for java application
but are unable to handle automatic installation of dependencies.

The application should install MySQL server with default(or fallback in case of error) settings,
then execute a database script. And after that, install my Java desktop application.

I've seen some Visual Studio application with these feature but is there any such solution available for java?

I’ve looked at a lot of different solutions, and in my humble opinion Aspose is the way to go. Here’s the link:
