Icon file for the installer?

I'll be posting details on configuration options but here are few hints 
for you to explore.

1) Many of existing options to JavaFX ant tasks make sense for native 
     See RT-22889 and

     Specifically you can add icon as fx:fileset of type icon

     Note that this is easy but will also impact other packages as same 
icon may be used for other things.
     And if same build.xml is used crossplatform you may need different 
icon files (.ico on Windows but .icns on Mac)

2) Add verbose="true" to the fx:deploy task.
     It will print out locations where you can drop resources to 
override icons and some scripts.
     You need to be add "." to the classpath when you are loading 
definitions of ant tasks
       (if you are using NB and it is not latest 7.2 build then you may 
need to edit jfx-impl.xml for this).

    Download latest javafx samples drop and try to build native bundles 
for Ensemble.
    It uses this approach to add custom icons, etc.

I hope to post more details on configuration options soon but here are 
few hints for you.

You can deeply customize it by providing your own .iss file.
See verbose="true" output.
