View Full Version : Bundling Java Plugin and Web start
07-03-2002, 03:56 AM
Our application requires both Java plugin and Java Web start. I found that the bundled JVM provided by installshield doesn't install plugin or web start. The JRE installation of Sun's JRE 1.4.0 installs both these.
Is there a way to bundle this with the application installation such that the installation of the JRE happens without user input ???

1) Run Sun's installer from your installer with an exec action.
2) Create your own JVM bundle that includes these things and configure the windows registry yourself to emulate Sun's install. Refer to KB articles Q105139 and Q106447. In order to access the knowledge base, please visit...
The second option is more invisible to the end user.

I opted for the first option, but I tried to exceute Sun's installer in silent mode using a response file. It seems that the installtion cannot read the response file and installs the JVM in the install location of the product.
How do I specify the .iss file in the "Arguments" property of the Exec Action bean?

The problem you are probably running into is that the response file is not in the current working directory of where you are running the silent install from.

Thanks for the fast response.
How do I get the installer to use the .iss file? I gave the following command argument:
-s -a -s -f1jresetup.iss -f2jresetup.log
Do I have to install the .iss file to the target machine first? If so, how do I specify the install location in the argument??
Thanks in advance.

I tried running the Sun's JVM installation using the silent mode. I first installed the response file in the C:\temp of the target machine and gave that as an argument. During the installation I could see the JVM installation process getting started in the "Task Manager" of Windows NT but dies soon after without completion.
The arguments I specified are:
-s -a -s -f1C:\temp\jresetup.iss -f2C:\temp\jresetup.log
What could have gone wrong???
