Install a Simple Swing Application

On the surface, this project builds an application to display a simple salutation. As such, the application can be used as a starting point for any Swing project. It uses one class to launch the application and another to start the GUI. The launcher limits its imports to the standard classloader but the GUI or other classes may use packages loaded by the Java Extension Mechanism. In the event that the extension path is not present, the launcher can catch the exception and display a message dialog.

Under the surface, this project is actually about creating an IzPack installer for this or any project. See the demonstration page for more.
