    Designing Java Apps for Users Without a JRE Installed Yet

      Hi, sorry if this post is in the wrong place, but here goes:

      I'm designing a Swing Java application for a client. My client intends to distribute/sell this application.

      I'm concerned because, chances are that at least one of the people he distributes this application to will not have the JRE installed and will thus be unable to run the application.

      Can anyone give me some suggestions on ways I can make my application more convenient for users without the JRE currently installed? Even some kind of error message that would direct the user to the JRE download site would be okay.
