how much am i allowed to trim form the JRE when i distribute my applications ?
i need to know all the files from the JRE that i can delete and still distribute my application. (minimum size)
yes, i know about what they say in the readme. but i've seen applications distributed with a smaller JRE, so i gues they trimmed some more. is that allowed ?

thanks

Just don't do it; you can delete some jar's and/or dll's but how do you deal with such a nonstandard
distribution if other applications or newer editions will fail because of one stupid file to few?
Apart from that, the critical minimum is so big that the gain can be ignored.
Suppose that SUN didn't make it bigger than necessary.

;JOOP!

JRE itself is a very minimal and essential to execute your application with all the supports (including GUI).
So redistributing the JRE even as a shorter version might not be allowed.  You can check the agreement in the sun's site to know about this fessibility
