Hi,

I am currently using PDE build to build my RCP product. Ideally, I'd
like to include a JRE as part of the RCP application, so that the user
can direclty use my application, without going through the hassle of
installing a JRE on his own (our target users are not necessarily
technically versatile).

Now, assume I am building my RCP app on a 64-bit Win7 machine, running
64-bit JRE and 64-bit Eclipse. I have no trouble to specify and include
the JRE if I am building only for this platform. But what can I do if I
want to build for multiple platforms (including Mac, Linux), or even
just 32-bit and 64-bit variants for windows? Is there a way I can
achieve that using PDE build?

Because I doubt there is, does anyone have a hint how I could achieve
the desired behavior using additional build and/or packaging tools?

Best Regards,
Marc

Try with the rootfiles:
