Innovative IDE based on VRL (Visual Reflection Library)
VRL-Studio is an innovative Integrated Development Environment (IDE) based on the Java Platform that combines both visual and text-based programming. In contrast to many other Development Environments VRL-Studio Projects are fully functional programs that are developed at run-time. This makes it an ideal environment for rapid prototyping, teaching and experimentation.

The following options can be enabled to create bundles that contain a full JRE installation:
jre.location.linux.x86=/path/to/linux/jre/x86/ jre.location.linux.x64=/path/to/jre/x64/ jre.location.windows.x86=/path/to/jre/x86/ jre.location.windows.x64=/path/to/jre/x64/ jre.location.osx=/path/to/jre/
