My resolution for the year 2012 is to NOT install the Java JRE on any computer. It's slow, it's bloated, it's a security threat and it's owned by the most evil software house in the world.
Openoffice (I can't stand the Oracle logo in the splash screen - for me it's dead) Libreoffice bugs me at startup because Java is missing? Easy, google docs!
Android SDK? Ditch it too, BB10 is coming!
But, I was remembering that bbwp was just a batch calling a jar, understandable because in this way it runs on win/mac/linux without much hassles
The BB10 SDK refuses to install if the JRE is not installed. I opened with 7zip and it looks like the only application that needs it just the installer, flexera installanywhere!
You made a great job by replacing the java binaries with node.js, why not making the full switch and use a decent installer that doesn't need Java???
You don't need an installer at all, just unzip the folder and it's done!
InstallAnywhere 2012 Enterprise Edition costs $4499, please do a favor to you and us by saving those money and use any other installer.
We don't really need an installer for that, expecially if it forces us to install an useless platform to automatically catch viruses while browsing.
Solved! Go to Solution.

I spent some time investigating and Java is mandatory for bar packaging and signing
But, I found a way to make it work without installing Java (on Windows):
