You'll immediately see the Build Targets panel, as shown in Figure 10. As you can see, I'm bundling a JDK-1.4.1-based JVM with my Windows installer. I used a JDK-1.4-specific release of Tomcat (tomcat-4.1.24- LE-jdk14, to be precise), and therefore, I also need to make sure that the Mac OS X installer will require JDK 1.4.

In Figure 11, you can see that that's an easy thing to specify.

Hitting Build will automatically generate installers for Windows, Mac OS X, and Linux, as well as an HTML page and a Java applet that will auto-detect the proper version for the user. This entire page and supporting files, as shown in Figure 12, was generated automatically by InstallAnywhere.

Running the installer for Mac OS X will generate a standard installer, as shown in Figures 13 through 18.
