Pack is a one-stop solution for packaging, distributing and deploying applications. It is able to generate cross platform, Java-based installers that both encompass and embrace the target operating systems heterogeneity (Windows, Mac OS X, Linux, *BSD, Solaris). IzPack is by no mean rigid and lets you compose your installers the way you want through a wide range of existing features and extension points.
This talk will outline: the IzPack features, its use-cases and positioning against other deployment solutions, the history of the project, from a fun hack made in a student dorm-room to an industry-backed international project thoughts on building a project community, licensing matters, sustaining/scaling a project in the long term and business-model considerations.
