No such package exists to my knowledge. You'd have to whip something up yourself if you want this. Java isn't as popular as PHP in packages like this.

I think the NetBeans IDE bundles Apache Tomcat and Java, but it is not single-click and does not contain MySQL.

My suggestion would be to download all 3 installers and see how they are packaged. Most installers have a switch for silent installation such as /q which can aid you in writing a small batch script to install all 3 at once. You may want to check out App Deploy for some hints.

For Java runtime, e.g.:

jre-6u22-windows-i586-s.exe /s /v /qn ADDLOCAL=ALL IEXPLORER=1 JAVAUPDATE=0

My only concern with 1-click installers is the cruft it is putting on your machine in the background. I like selectively picking what options I want in the installer, while a 1-click mechanism takes away those options (so what is it selecting in the background?!?!).

I think XAMPP is the closest thing available -

XAMPP is an easy to install Apache distribution containing MySQL, PHP and Perl. XAMPP is really very easy to install and to use - just download, extract and start.

In my experience, it installs very quickly, and every component functions/integrates correctly.
