Compressing IzPack Installers

Sometimes one need to carry a lot of different files in the installer. There is a possibility to compress them using pack200.

In your install.xml in info section simply specify:

<pack200 />

But be aware, that when your installer is getting bigger and you are using pack200 to compress it, it can take quite a long time!
For instance, if you are carrying other jar files or other installers (I hope to write about modularized installers some time later), building the installer with pack200 can take up to several minutes!
