How can you create an executable demo for distribution to machines that do not have JDK (regular user machines) that will run? Do you put/execute your own runtime environment from a distributed package (or on CD) or do you have to have them install the JRE to their system before they could execute it? I don't have anything like this yet, but I'm curious (and need the incintive) and would like to know if it is possible so that I can create some items that would impress the non-technical community and have a way to show my current (ok, future) capabilities to those who are. Could I include a database with it and how difficult would that be?
Thanks..

I've never used one, but I've noticed a few programs available to convert Java programs to machine specific executables. I think that some IDE's have such a feature (newer versions of Visual J++ to name one). You may want to try a quick search on google.
Good Luck.
