Last Week VMware ThinApp Blog announced the release of the new ThinApp Factory virtual appliance which can be used to automate the packaging of legacy Windows applications with VMware ThinApp and is free to all existing VMware ThinApp customers.
Based on Debian Linux offers a TomCat web based interface that presents an enhanced ThinApp package editor and a basic web based store that helps users to install their own applications. Supports manually uploaded installers, file share repositories as well as RSS-style app-installer feeds based on JSON format.
VMware ThinApp Factory can be downloaded from the VMware Flings site. The specific flings page for ThinApp Factory can be found here.
