    Default Concerned about deployment of GUI applications with Java and JavaFX ... Runtime issues?

    Hello:

    I'm a former VB6 programmer, just now getting back into coding. I like Java, because it is multi-platform.

    I'm going through the learning process now, but I have some concerns, that hopefully you guys can help me understand.

    I want to write GUI stand-alone shareware programs, but I learned that swing is now outdated, and JavaFX has been split from from Java.

    My concern is deployment. What if an end user has no java installed? Am I allowed to install the JRE and JavaFX as part of my own installer? Remember ... this will be for shareware, with many thousands of downloads. I want to make it as easy as possible for the end user to download/install my programs.

    Please share what you know on this subject.

    Thanks!!

    I think a JRE must be installed to run a java program.
    I don't know how to ensure that there is a JRE on a user's PC.
    If you don't understand my answer, don't ignore it, ask a question.
