Subject Re: [jira] Commented: (GERONIMO-693) Need startup scripts in bin directory
Date Wed, 10 Aug 2005 22:27:37 GMT
AFAIK, HEAD no longer requires a JDK and can run with the JRE ?  M4 
requires the JDK. 

It may be useful to allow Geronimo to run under the JDK as AFAIK the JDK's 
rt.jar has debug info for the classes (except the sun classes) but the 
JRE's rt.jar doesn't (see difference in size of JAR).  I'm not sure 
whether there is much of an impact on performance using the debug enabled 
(JDK) classes at class loading time compared with the JRE.

Considering that most people have JAVA_HOME pointing to their JDK (due to 
other tools they have installed), should we use JRE_HOME by default (if it 
is set) and provide a parameter to switch to using JAVA_HOME for the JDK?
