Is there somewhere that documents the exact list of packages/classes that are included in the default Java Kernel installer? If possible, I would like to try to avoid those not included by default (but I realise this may not be practical).

Hi qu0ll,

The basic packages that comes with the Java Kernel installer is minimum. There is no reason to trim down your application functionalities just to fit in whatever the Java Kernel comes with.

IMO, you should write your application as it is designed without the concern of what is in Java Kernel because the kernel installer will try to fetch the packages that your application needs first, and VM will run your application when all the required packages are installed. The download manager will continue to download the rest of the packages that are not needed by your application in the background while your application is running. In addition, this situation only happens once when user do not have a required version of Java installed. I do not see the reason to make your application to be less functional or taking the penalties just because it is the first Java application that runs on user's computer AND user does not have the required Java already installed.
