MyJavaPack - an Open Source version of Blue Glue?

As noted by John Munsch, MyJavaPack looks pretty cool. At first glance, it looks like an open-source version of Open Logic's Blue Glue. Since I actually did some work on Blue Glue this summer, I downloaded MyJavaPack and did a a quick install.

I was quite impressed. All it did was download the packages I requested and installed them. In most cases, this is what I want - especially on my machine where I already have everything setup. Blue Glue goes a bit further than MyJavaPack. It installs and configures everything for you. This is great for brand new machines, but can be a pain for pre-configured machines since it adds stuff to your PATH.

The thing I like about MyJavaPack is that it's open-source. Therefore, I might be able to dig in and customize it for an AppFuse-based installer. Such an intaller would include tools for developing AppFuse: Ant, Tomcat, MySQL, Eclipse and AppFuse. That'd be pretty cool to be able to download and install an entire development environment.

Neither product does what we all really want: the ability to do an "update" (like Windows Update or Software Update on OS X) of our existing packages.

I too tried MyJavaPack and liked its clean, simplicity. In regards to the ability to update existing packages, that certainly would make it even more attractive. Albeit, with more power comes more complexity. Wouldn't it have to be able to obtain certain administrative priviledges in order to perform the updates? Or, if you're already logged in as administrator before running MyJavaPack, would that be sufficient? Hopefully, James Williams (MyJavaPack's creator) will consider adding the ability to update packages to a near-future release. I can see it being a great benefit to coporate IT shops interested in keeping a large installed base of applications in sync. In addition, it made setting up a J2EE development environment in my lab very painless.

[Trackback] Matt Raible hinted me to MyJavaPack a nice open source installer of Java developer goodies (e.g. Eclipse, Ant, Spring, Hibernate, Tomcat, ...). That's a good thing to install a complete infrastructure on a new machine. Looks like a great tool....
