[izpack-users] Executable jar file not writing a file to install path

Hi all,

My installer app launches an executable swing application which 
generates an xml file in a specific directory in the INSTALL_PATH.

        <pack name="utils" required="yes">
               <description>The base files</description>                  
               <!-- utils -->
               <fileset dir="utils" targetdir="$INSTALL_PATH/utils" 
                    <include name="*.*"/>

targetfile="$INSTALL_PATH/utils/DataSourceInstaller.jar" type="jar" 
failure="ask" stage="postinstall" keep="true"/>



While the Swing application is correctly executed during the 
installation, it is unable to generate the xml file. However, if i 
execute the same application in the install path directory outside the 
installer app, the xml file is then correctly generated.

Can anyone help me on how i can fix this or at least be able to debug .
