The Installer Framework is what its name says. A framework to create installers, independently of its content.

What you are asking for is understanding the logic of your development project, what dependencies it has and create a list of items to be packaged in the correct order to deploy your application.

That is only possible semi-automatically, but definitely not in the scope of the installer framework as is.
