    size of distributable

    Hey folks, We're looking to use Excelsior to develop casual games in java. One of the business issues we face is the size of Excelsior apps compared to an equivalent c++ application. The casual games marketplace favours downloads less than 25mb, and currently the xjre folder will zip down to around 20mb. We're aware that a number of the dlls are unused by our games, but understand that we can't remove them from the distribution package because of license agreements between Excelsior and Sun. So, my question is, are there any developments in this area? Either on the legal side to remove this restriction, or in the technology to make the xjre folder smaller? Thanks, Ricky
