Subject Re: Why is JDK needed to install Apache Tomcat 4.0 on WinNT?
Date Wed, 24 Apr 2002 16:37:34 GMT
Here is the text from the readme.txt in the jre directory of an sdk install for 
java 1.3.1_003:

  *********************************************************************
  *               Notice of New Redistribution Options                 *
  *                                                                    *
  * Beginning October 17, 2001, it is permissable to redistribute      *
  * the "javac" compiler with the Java 2 Runtime Environment (JRE).    *
  * See the Sun Binary Code License and this README for terms          *
  * and conditions.  Items that have been added to the section         *
  * in this README entitled "Redistribution of Java 2 SDK files"       *
  * are:                                                               *
  *                                                                    *
  * bin/javac.exe  (Microsoft Windows)                                 *
  * bin/javac and bin/i386/native_threads/javac (Linux and Solaris IA) *
  * bin/javac and bin/sparc/native_threads/javac  (Solaris SPARC)      *
  * lib/tools.jar  (all platforms)                                     *
  *                                                                    *
  * These files include the Java 2 SDK tools classes, including        *
  * the classes for the "javac" compiler.                              *
  *                                                                    *
  * Additionally, on Microsoft Windows platforms it is now             *
  * permissible to redistribute the Java HotSpot Server VM (also       *
  * known as "C2") with the Microsoft Windows version of the           *
  * JRE. (C2 is already included with the JREs for Linux and the       *
  * Solaris(TM) operating environment.)  Items that have been added    *
  * to the section on "Redistribution of Java 2 SDK files" are:        *
  *                                                                    *
  * jre/bin/server/jvm.dll                                             *
  * jre/bin/server/Xusage.txt                                          *
  *                                                                    *
