Unfortunately it doesn't work.
For JBDS installer jar, running
java -jar installer.jar -options-template myinstaller.properties
generates the property file, but it's empty.
For DV, running the same command, the resulting property file includes
"INSTALL_PATH=" which should indicate that you can set this property
as Max suggested.
But running the installer with
java -DINSTALL_PATH=/Users/rasp/jbossqa/runtimes/jboss-eap-6.3.0 -jar
it will still offer this as the default path:
So no luck here.
