Hi All,

I have to make an installer for Solaris and for Windows.
In short:
It has to just copy some files to a specified location, edit some xml files and make a database connection to an sql db or a oracle db.
I used an universal installer project but it has a lot of restrictions if you compare it with a general MSI package.
I know that you have to use a java installer to make it work on both windows as solaris machines but who can help me or give me some advise to make this installer package.

The biggist issues for me are:
- getting an existing environment variable in the installation project
- making a db connection to oracle or sql depending on what you selected during the installation.
