What tool to create Install / Setup packages
Although I have seen that it is possible to get a java app to work by simply copying the whole dist app dir to the destination machine which I like very much (oh the good old times are back), I do know from many people and customers that they like to have a setup program that creates start menu links (under Windows or either on Linux), Desktop links basically - or in some cases to create some default data folder (and set some permissions).
What tools are you using to achieve this? Searching the internet I found a lot of possible solutions. Actually looking on all of them and testing seems a big work so recommendations are greatly appreciated. That would narrow the list of tools to test.
