I presume (as with earlier years) the available libraries & resources will be limited to what is available in the JRE distribution?

and more specifically, will it be the stand-alone JRE distribution, not the JRE distribution contained within the JDK.

Is there a difference between the JDK JRE and the stand-alone one?

Lots of stuff in tools.jar for example and -server

But hey, the 4k competition is not only for us developers, but should also serve the visitors from slash-dot. That pretty much limits it to a JRE.

the target JRE is the "public" JRE. the problem with this is, however, there is no soundbank.

why the "public" JRE? simple. slashdot. (also, a common denominator. your game can't fail if it doesnt use a soundbank, but can if it does).

if you're looking to do sound, Abuse, best you can do is procedural I suppose.

JDK - Java Development Kit

JRE - Java Runtime Environment

JDK provides the class and the necessary requirments to develop any form of program.

However you will need the JRE to run any form of Java Programs. Hence JRE can be installed without the JDK..

Hope that helps... ^^

well there are two JREs

the JDK includes a "private" JRE. this includes a soundbank, a server VM, etc. etc.

the JRE you download by itself is called the "public" JRE, this one does not come with a soundbank or server VM and bla bla. however it is possible to download the soundbank from the Sun website.

yeah, it wasn't the soundbank I was after this time.
I'm exploring other potencially explotable resources within the JRE! =)
