Subject Interest in a Nullsoft Installer for Apache Tomcat JK 1.2.20 Web Server Connector on IIS?
Date Fri, 26 Jan 2007 20:24:38 GMT
I've read from the archives that there has not been an MSI installer
released for the last several version of the Tomcat JK server connector
for IIS because there is not an InstallShield license available to the
maintainers.

1.  Has anyone attempted to rewrite the installer using the Nullsoft
Installer?  <http://nsis.sourceforge.net/Docs/>  The Nullsoft Installer
is both open source and powerful.  Hopefully it is capable of handling
of the needs for an IIS server connector installer.

2.  Is there any documentation of what the InstallShield install does
other than what is documented in the "IIS HowTo" page?
<http://tomcat.apache.org/connectors-doc/webserver_howto/iis.html>

If there is community interest in moving the installer program to the
Nullsoft platform, I am willing to take a stab at it.  Let me know.

Thanks,

-Eric
