A Mifos (Windows) "Installer", or simply Launcher, has been discussed many times:
- MIFOSBI-56 Ready to Ship / Verified for a related effort
As I couldn't actually find a JIRA New Feature issue for this yet, I'm entering this one.
MIFOS2X-4919 Ready for Showcase , my "Executable WAR", should be the basis for this - IMHO. – My personal favorite (now having the executable WAR) would probably be the http://launch4j.sourceforge.net route here - not really an "Installer" at all, just something to address the launch, just something to avoid the -Xmx/-XX CLI args to java -jar mifos.war, and may be a the JRE download (otherwise it could simply be a mifos.bat/mifos.sh).
Personally I think this will only really make sense / add true value once we have MIFOS2X-4926 Closed , although of course the two are technically unrelated, and this one could be done before / independent of MIFOS2X-4926 Closed .
