[izpack-users] Two important features needed

   We've been working with IzPack and pushing it to the limits for the 
past couple months. I will say its a great piece of work with a LOT of 
innovative thinking in it. Two features that we found out would be VERY 
important (and comparatively not hard to implement) are:

1) An install log file that records exactly what the installer _has_ 
installed. Especially in the event it fails mid-way through.
2) Put the uninstaller down first, and then allow it to work using the 
above log. This way, partial installs can easily be uninstalled.
This is hugely important if an install fails and a new install will not 
succeed over the failed one, at which point you're really stuck.

I'm happy to help with these new features too!
