[izpack-users] Usage of Loose Packs

Hi all,

I tried for hours to get a loose package working.

The problem occurs during installation. What is the correct value for 
the "dir" attribute in a fileset of a loose package?

Assuming that in the same directory where the setup.jar is located there 
are a couple of WAR files that are to be copied into the webapps folder 
of the installation directory. The following does not the job. It seems 
that the specified dir (".") is resolved relatively to the basedir that  
was specified during compiling the setup. Yet, the basedir used during 
compilation can definitely not be used during installation!

Best regards,

    <pack name="wars" required="yes" loose="true">
      <fileset dir="." includes="*.war" targetdir="$INSTALL_PATH/webapps"/>
