With flexibility that Linux, UNIX and other multiplatform developers haven't seen before, InstallAnywhere 2010 allows developers to comprehensively manage all phases of the installation lifecycle including installation, rollback, maintenance, repair, and uninstall., UNIX developers have traditionally created homegrown installations or native packages like RPM, PKG, etc. to deploy their applications, which did not provide the required level of flexibility to manage applications.
