Description
We need to truly integrate JavaFX 2.2 in the 7u6 JRE and JDK installers on all OS.

Currently the Mac and Linux JDK Installers integrate JavaFX 2.1 in this way, so no further work is required on those platforms.

On Windows, however, the JDK installer includes the JavaFX SDK installer as a resource, extracts it, and executes it during the JDK install. Likewise, the JRE installer downloads the standalone JavaFX runtime installer and executes it after installing the JRE bits.

The old integration implementation will need to be removed, and replaced with true integration.

The JavaFX team should own updating the Makefiles to make their artifacts available in our install repo.

The removal of current implementation, and any additional installer work (PiP considerations, etc.) should be owned by core-install.

EVALUATION

The JavaFX bits need to be added into the jre/jdk images.

The fix is to change the makefile to get the JavaFX artifacts and unzip to the jre/jdk image directory.
