Is it possible to install the full standard JDK (not the JRE) on a distribution intended for eventual distribution; here meaning the Java JDK bundle listed on the Download page.

Are any specific files to be excluded as per the JDK instructions - or not allowed to be redistributed??

Yes, you may distribute the JDK. You may also
distribute just the JRE.

You can follow the JDK README for details
on optional files in distriubuting the JDK.

You may alternatively add certain files from
the JDK to a JRE distribution. See the JRE
README for details.

Our recent publication of the DLJ 1.5.0_07
bundles includes further clarifications
in the README files. FFI:
