AntInstaller is a flexible front end for deploying applications using Ant build files as the engine. It provides a Swing GUI and a command line alternative for situations (such as server deployment) when X is not available. The installer is designed by creating an XML config file that describes the various pages of the installer and the input required from the user. The input is validated and can be dates, directories, options selected from a list, or other structured input. Once the properties are selected, AntInstaller runs and calls the selected targets. Primarily, it is designed for installing Java apps in a user-friendly way, but can be used for anything that requires structured input for Ant scripts.
