With the release of jdkPortable, support for the same has not yet been added to PAL. It is, however, on my todo list.
NB - Marked as a bug for tracking purposes.
There are essentially two methods for adding this to PAL.
I'm personally leaning towards the second option, as it's possible users have both jPortable and jdkPortable installed, and unless jdkPortable was given priority over jPortable, there's the possibility jdkPortable would not be found by the launchers if jPortable exists.
I'm in favor of both. For the 1st instance, where an app needs a JRE, look for jPortable first and the JRE within jdkPortable second.
In the second instance, an app needs JDK not JRE, we should figure out how that works now with Netbeans and the like and add a key and logic just for that.
Sometimes, the impossible can become possible, if you're awesome!
Ok, so we're in agreement then.
Matt made a merge request a while back, and I'm incorporating much of his work.
I've added support for jdkPortable to PAL.
Please test in a forked copy of the repository.
If others can confirm this works as intended, I'll push the changes to the official repository.
John, I'll contact you offline with a copy.
This was added to the official repo in August 2017.
