Subject Re: Question about distributing a smaller foot print of the JRE
Date Tue, 26 Aug 2008 01:15:48 GMT
I must have misinterpreted the Harmony web site; I thought that one 
of the goals was to allow this kind of ship only what you need.  When 
I read that it would be modular I took that to mean you could choose 
what to ship.  Sounds like it will require work on my part to accomplish.

Thanks for the info,
