Wouldn’t this break code signing?

For now, OS X only, couldn’t you require your users to have the common, ‘browser’, jre installed?

alias javajre="/Library/Internet\ Plug-Ins/JavaAppletPlugin.plugin/Contents/Home/bin/java"

javajre -version
java version "1.9.0-ea"
Java(TM) SE Runtime Environment (build 1.9.0-ea-b70)
Java HotSpot(TM) 64-Bit Server VM (build 1.9.0-ea-b70, mixed mode) 

Then you could Runtime exec that?
