Currently I have a jsp/servlet application running in Tomcat 5. One client, however, wants to host the application in his own office. Then we need to package a zip file and send to client.

Now I want
1. minimum Tomcat server,
2. minimum MySql server,
3. package all java/jsp files into jar
4. bundle a java minimum runtime.

Any suggestions ?

thanks

Tomcat can run in embedded mode - so you can ship a double-clickable desktop app that starts a Tomcat running on localhost. Then there would be no servlet engine to install. (You would ship all web app files in a .war file.)

Does the DB have to be multi-user? If not, have you considered embedding Derby? Again, there would be nothing to install.
