    I'm confused at what you want. Did you want to put other jar's or dll's into the Java JRE install directory?

    Depending on where the JRE is installed and what OS you have, there may or may not be restrictions on whether you can do this or not. However, I would recommend against modifying the JRE install dir. Instead, put the jar's or dll's into the same folder as your main Java application start path.
