Apologies if this is a FAQ but I’ve not been able to find it.
I am considering writing an app that would run on many different
platforms, Linux x86, mainframe linux, AIX and Windows are likely.
The Java runtime environments will already be installed on all of
these but the SDK won’t and I am not likely to be allowed to install
the SDK on the many machines that would run the app.
Is it possible to package up my ruby app, and a stripped down Jruby
for distribution, requiring only the JRE on the target machine?
