What are the issues involved in Shipping my own JRE with my Java/JNI application?

Hi there,

I am not aware of any issues, other than Sun trying to discourage the habit because it clutters people's disks.

In fact, in the absence of a standardized discovery mechanism, I have found that it is the only way to guarantee that your application will keep working when people muck around with the Java configuration.

Here at Codemesh, we rely not just on a private JRE but also on a custom launcher that sets up the environment just right for our application.
