Description lazlow69 2003-10-22 06:32:13 UTC
Is there anyway to install the java runtime environment that is required for
installation into the install package, or is this a licensing issue?  The
packaging and installation is sooooo smooth except for the smack in the face
that you need a JRE and no direct link or OK button to have it fixed.  

  Where does this stand as a priority for the developer / refiner folks out there?

It will be very nice feature if there are no licensing issues. But it should 
be always included as a separate package. Installer will recognize it in the 
installer directory if present. You shouldn't force user to download 
additional MBs if he is not interested in the Java features. 
If this is not possible, just show the link (clickable) where the user can 
download the j2re in the installation dialog. They are not able download 
and install j2re by themselves ...

AOO is no longer delivered with an included JRE
