Does JET 3.7 or the future 4.0 support dynamically compiling a JRE? What I mean by this, would be compiling into your executable only the parts of the JRE that you are dependent on. To keep the distribution small.
I know Sun doesn't allow this, however they are not the only freely available JRE/JVM. THere is JC (http://jcvm.sourceforge.net/) and JamVM (http://jamvm.sourceforge.net/) plus Excelsior could write their own, or one based on the GNU Classpath project.
My hold out on purchasing JET is that it doesn't appear to support this. That I am still required to have the JRE installed on the computer that will run the native executable, or use JetPackII that will create an installation package that will install your executable with the JRE.
This still ads over 25mb to your application. When if you are only using a very small portion of the JRE where maybe all you need is 5-7mb of it.
Plus it would be nice if it was just part of your executable or a external library in the same directory.
Please let me know what I am missing about JET, or if I am on track, and maybe Excelsior is on a path that solves these issues.
