Sorry to be not exact here. Yes, I mean the packager.

With Java 8 JRE a customer had just to update it. Now (because there is none and all is packed) we have to publish a new version for every important update (e.g. security patches).

Not exactly correct. It depends on the way you package your app.

Java is a very mature framework. It is similar to the C++ distributable packages. They don't really need to be updated very often. The embedded Java doesn't do anything while your app is not running.

The security issues with Java in the last couple of years were related to the Java plugin that is used inside the browser. This is not relevant when you develop with B4J.
