Automating Installer

I need to automate the GUI installation of our InstallAnywhere installer. I'm also new to Java so I'm utterly confused.

The only document I have found to help with this is here:

http://helpnet.flexerasoftware.com/InstallAnywhereAPI/IA2011/gui-test-auto/javadocs/index.html?com/z...

How do I get started with this?
Are there any code samples provided?
Do I use IAClasses.zip in my Eclipse BuildPath?

Re: Automating Installer

What do you mean by automate your gui install. Do you mean you would like to run a silent install with an answer file? Or what exactly do you mean by "automate"?

I mean so that that our QA department can have unit tests to test all functionality of our installer to ensure old bugs have not regressed.. to test that all features of our installer are functional before we ship. A silent install would bypass the display of the GUI that they need to test, so no I am not referring to silent installs.

The link to the java doc I posted supposedly if for this.
