hi
im runing an rmi program.
this program is runing on a server,
and is used by 300 client computers.
my question is, is there a way for the clients to use this program without jdk being installed on their system?

thanks

Tal Tal,

I'm thinking that's not your real name.

Please change your display name to comply with the JavaRanch naming policy.

Moving this to the Distributed Java forum, where conversations about RMI are normally held around these parts...

I notice that your email address uses the name alex.

The JDK and the JRE are not the same thing. A JDK (a.k.a J2SDK) includes a Java Runtime Environment (JRE) and development tools, such as a Java compiler. A JRE doesn't include the development tools - just the runtime environment.
