Re: [tycho-user] How to bundle JRE with a product?

Hi Klaus,

There are two ways to handle this with Tycho.  The first way is to use
root files - although there are problems using this approach if you
want to upgrade the jre on window platforms - see [1].
The alternative is to bundle it with a feature (include the jre folder
in build.properties) and use the p2 setJvm touchpoint instruction.
Place something similar to the following in the features' p2.inf file
(also p2.inf in build.properties)


This will add the -jvm arg to the generated eclipse.ini (or
equivalent). Remember to set the correct platform filters!

When building the same product with tycho, the jre folder is missing. Is this not supported by tycho or do I need configure additional dependencies?
