There used to be an installer for the Java Access Bridge. I know I used
it back when I got Java from Sun. I thought Oracle didn't bother to
carry this forward when they provided 64-bit support. I guess it's true
that Oracle has never provided an installer for the Java Access Bridge,
but it wouldn't be true to assume this applies to Sun as well or that
the Java Access Bridge has never had an installer. I do agree with the
sentiment that this is something Oracle should address.
