View Full Version : portable java?

June 29th, 2009, 06:04 PM
Hi all, I made some app for Windows, Mac and Linux (C++). I need a GUI for it and I was wondering if I could make Java portable (app is for on usb sticks).

I'm basically looking for a way to put JRE for both Windows and Linux on the usb stick, so that I can run the java executables on just any PC and Mac.

I've checked out the jre installation, and it's 100mb for Linux alone. This is a bit ridiculous for an usb application..

I just need java for the GUI, and calling my C++ app. What files can I remove from the JRE installation? I'd be great if JRE could be shrinked to just 50mb. I don't need the functionality I don't need for this app.

Hope that's clear..
