Could the JRE please be optional in the next setup? It makes the setup file larger and also reinstalls something that I already have on my PC.


There are pros and cons to this issue. Bundling the JRE makes the download larger, but only by 8 MB. However, if we didn’‘t bundle the JRE, people would inevitably try to use Jive Messenger with the wrong Java version (1.4, etc), which would just be more of a support hassle for us. For now, the solution is to use the source release if you really don’'t want a bundled JRE. In the future, we may have additional options.
