You can deploy your java application on the Mac OS X. All the Java products can be embedded in a package to be deployed on the Mac OS X. This package will be a ZIP archive that contains for every Java Product a folder with a special structure. This folder is known as a bundle. The bundle groups related resources together in one place.
Of course, not all the features that are available for a Windows application are available for the Mac OS X. For the Java products deployed on the Mac OS X the following settings are supported at this time:
- Single or multiple Java products in one package
- File associations
- Java settings. Most of the settings you can specify for the Java products are supported. There are some exceptions: splash screen, JVM type and Library path are not supported.
Other settings that are available for a MSI package and are Windows Installer related, like custom actions, registry entries, environment variables etc. are not supported.
Also, there are some Mac OS X specific settings that are supported like: Description, Minimum OS, Icon, Signature, Bundle ID.
You can enable the creation of a Mac OS X by adding a Mac OS X Build in Media page.
