One of the least
advertised, but most useful Install Expert features is the ability to
make builds from the command line.
For the past few
years, we at BEIKS have been using this feature to build the
vast majority of dictionary packages for Palm, Windows Mobile
devices. Indeed, if for every product you need to make a trial
and a full build, then a branded build for various distributors,
then a build for every target platform, then eventually a build
for every target language...phew, it's a lot!
Did we mention the version changes?
If you have
already been through the hell of releasing a second build in
similar conditions you must already be looking for means to
automate the process. And rightfully so!
Install Expert does not currently include sample projects using
automation, it is itself fully capable of becoming part of the
automation chain - a feature, as mentioned earlier, which is
heavily used and tested within BEIKS.
Install Expert does not currently support Java based conduits
and we are not sure we want to support them in near future.
There are various
pros and cons of using any tool, of course, and we do not tell
you to cross Java for conduits (although that is what we have
chosen to do). However, Install Expert is designed and targeted
towards compact and optimized solutions, the Zen of the Palm
computing platform. If you are to redistribute the whole JVM for
a conduit that can be implemented in under 100 kB executable,
then you probably don't care about the size of your installation
anyway and might as well use the heavy artillery of installers,
like Install Shield or Wise.
We would be sorry
to lose a customer, but we also believe that tools should
be used according to their design capabilities. As of version
4, Install Expert definitely does not provide good and meaningful
ways to install Java-based applications.
Read the CDK!
is meant to save you time and efforts, it is not meant to
replace the knowledge of how conduits fit in a Palm OS based
understanding the Conduit Development Kit is crucial to the
success of your solution. Everything, from selecting unique
database creator, to choosing the type of conduit (DLL or EXE,
COM or simple API) to understanding the need and proper usage of
the redistributable COM suite DLLs - all this plays the central
role in implementing the best possible application that will
sell well. InstallExpert should be just another tool in your arsenal,
but the ability to use it is your power and responsibility.
