The installer utility scenario.
In this case, the AH Installation Phase doesn't occur, clearly, because the installer utility is exe-
cuted only once. In some cases, though, installer utilities register some little programs to be
invoked in case of uninstallation. This case is quite rare in Java because of its platform-neutral
nature. (For the interested reader, however, we will discuss several platform-specific Java
installers in Chapter 3, “Existing Solutions”).
