Watch Chet Haase on Java FX, Update N and JDK 7 (56 minutes).
It really sucks to have to install a 80mb JRE to run a small utility application. I don't want to see any replies to this post with people talking the about download JRE features. I'm interested in targeting environments where downloads things from the internet to servers is not allowed. The only way to know that my application is going to work when intalled is to include a JRE.
