When deploying to a lot of client computers, it is not fun to install more
megabytes than needed. Currently the ACC wants to have a complete JDK (not just
JRE) installed on each client computer:
Actually it seems that the only sense of having a JDK (instead of JRE) is that
the above documentation says one shall unjar appclient.jar on the client. It
seems, there is no other part of the JDK used besides jar.exe.
So I propose that the installation procedure gets changed: Do not pack the
appclient as a JAR but as a ZIP (virtually all target operating systems already
have ZIP installed, so no need for a complete JDK anymore), or do not pack it at
all but provide an installation image file system folder instead (can be copied
to the client without the need to unpack anything there).
This will reduce the footprint of the client installation by far.
