    we hv tried nullsoft NSI installer.....it creates .exe file . anything similar for unix platforms?

    I was thinking for having single script to do all kind of installations. Is there anything like that existing?

    What steps do you need to do in an install?
    Test for dependancies - like jre
    Create folders, copy files to different locations
    Create icons or Start menu shorcut
