Is there is way to make webapp as installable?

I need to make one installable, which on clicking has to install tomcat, database and deploy and to deploy the web application.
After doing a thorough search I am not able to find any tool, which provides such functionality. If anyone knows about such tool please provide me details of that.

Thanks,

Most such tools cost $$$. The one we typically use at work is InstallAnywhere: http://www.flexerasoftware.com/products/installanywhere.htm

Personally, I have often provided a zip file with a readme and a script that performs the installation. The read me says to unzip the file and run the script. That is usually sufficient.
