JDK included

Is JetBrains a Java licensee?
Or why can they include tools.jar in there 'JRE' distribution (see jre/lib dir)?
This lib clearly is not part of the JRE distribution!
Many vendors need it because of the included javac.
Others also have to solve this problem by NOT delivering a Java runtime and let the user install a JDK or setup will abort.

The licence has been changed recently and now it allows to bundle tools.jar.

Please read the license file for JRE carefully.

That's great!

Do you know if this is valid for JRE 1.4 only or also for older versions 1.3 and 1.2?

Thanx.

Andreas
