JVM embedding in commercial C program - does the Sun Java license cover it?

Can I embed the Sun Java interpreter (JRE) within my commercial product? ( Basically, linking in the library and being able to run java code within the product)
Does this require any special licensing from Sun?
It will be great if somebody can point to the specific license text that talks about this.

    Assisted Solution

    Do not worry about this: EVERYBODY does the same (without awareness)
    when they install the JAVA plug-in in their Internet Explorer, Firefox or other browser.
    In fact SUN is encouraging the spread of the JRE for their own purposes.
