Included with Native Installers
JExpress: The advantage of creating a JVM bundle is that you can have the JVM installed as a subdirectory of the installation directory.

Follow these instructions to create a JVM bundle.
3rd party: The advantage of including a third party installer of the JVM is that you don't have to have access to each platform to create the JVM bundle.
