Peter Rimmelzwaan, Semantica: "DocsDB/4 is the first document breakthrough since the invention of the filing cabinet. It offers truly relational document management and workflow through a web-based interface. Just like relational databases did two decades ago, relational document management will lift the restrictions of hierarchical structures like files and folders. DocsDB delivers flexible, fast and robust storage, retrieval, routing, filing, archiving and purging of large amounts of documents, whether on paper or electronic. Since DocsDB can be used on every Java platform we needed an installer that supported this and would be highly customizable, IzPack does just that!"

Not only it's the only fully multi-platform installer with Ant integration but also the way to use it is very simple. As it's open source, adding features to it is fairly easy and the support and help of the project's members are fantastic.
