The current DrJava installer takes users to the java.com site, which provides the JRE for download and provides no links to the JDK.

Sun's site indicates that the JDK must be obtained from java.sun.com.

Novice end user experiences this as:
* downloads and installs DrJava
* Launches DrJava
* Is directed to java.com for JRE download
* downloads and installs Java JRE
* Launches DrJava
*** DrJava STILL reports that no compiler was found

Solution: have the installer direct users to java.sun.com
