Hello, I am a novice Java Programmer. I have developed a GUI application software with swing. However the enduser must have JRE on their system( I know abut native compilers like GCJ , etc.) .

My problem is that I know I can not distribute JVM. But is there any harm if I distribute the program that i created commercially even though i do not have licence from SUN (with the user getting JVM themselves).

Please inform me about these legal matters.

The JRE and JDK are both free from Sun. You can distribute a JRE with your app, you don't need a license.

Where did you get that idea?
