Yes, packaging JREs along with apps is a capital sin in Java
development. It goes back to the days of the slightly incompatible
Java 1.1 and MSFT Java, where vendors choose to package JVMs along
with apps to save them from the grief of "it doesn' t run on my JVM"

It should be avoided at all costs.
