What is different about the IDEA JRE? Why can't we just copy and paste
our own?

Yes, you can.
First of all it should be jre 1.4.1
0. jre should be copied to idea home
1. tools jar from jdk should be copied to jre/lib
2. javac.exe from jdk/bin should be copied to jre/bin


We are providing the preconfigured JRE to ensure the right version of JRE is
used and to free users from doing the steps above.

Great, this should save me time waiting for the download site to become
available... (:

... just tested and worked like a charm.

Thanks!

Just to say that I am also unable to download the jre. I can download 661 fine (for windows) but never the jre.

I was trying last night (6pm - GMT) and just now (10am - GMT) .

I have just tried the instructions on this website and it worked fine. Took me a while to find these though.

Could you please fix the jre download, or maybe provide the instructions in a file included with the main download (say jrehelp.txt).

Many thanks, and keep up the good work!

;)

If this is so, why do you force us to copy stuff around, instead of
simply letting us specify the location of the already installed (1.4.1)
JDK? Why all those endless discussions? I just dont see it...

1. copy tools.jar from $JAVA_HOME/lib to $IDEA_HOME/lib/ (you shoud use a
jdk 1.4.1)
2. modify idea.bat and set JAVA_EXE to point to $JAVA_HOME/bin/java.exe
done

There are several reasons for the whole approach taken:
1. to ensure that the application is started with particular version of JDK
and thus remove JDK version-related patches for Sun's bugs
2. release version will be distributed with the bundled JRE thus we
hard-code the JRE location
3. practice shows that a lot of people simply ingnore any instructions and
we end up with a lot of "bug reports" and complains. Thus the rule is: "the
less parameters the user have to configure, the higher is probability that
everything starts ok".
4. we can easily upgrade the JRE needed instead of telling the users that
they should download JRE 1.4.1_01 instead of JRE 1.4.1 for example
5. for expert users we will publish the instructions about "manual" JRE
configuration.

And about the endless discussions, we are also surprised why the discussions
last so long...

This will work unless you need jre/lib/ext directory to be processed.
And of course you should be sure that JDK version and tools.jar match
