[izpack-devel] Mac App

Hi all,

Is anyone packaging a Mac .app Bundle inside of an izPack installer 
without any issues?  I ask because we have an installer that places a 
few files inside of the user's home directory and also java .jar file 
inside of the Applications directory.  We recently wanted to bundle the 
jarfile in the Mac OSX .app format so that we could change the dock name 
of our application to something more readable (currently it is the full 
package name of our Main class which happens to be our splash screen so 
the name isn't even accurate).  But when we use Jar Bundler to create 
the .app it works before the izPack installation, but not afterward.  I 
am not sure if I am doing something wrong or if this is a limitation of 
the .app structure (specifically I am worried that the 
JavaApplicationStub is corrupted somehow).  Any thoughts?
