So, I use the JDK for all installs, most users I have also use this, the JDK comes with a jaxb reference impl as part of tools.jar. The JIRA installer ships with a JRE lacking tools.jar. This means users who using the installer encounter runtime exceptions if addons used JAXB and didn't add their own implementation jar.
Bamboo had the same thing: https://jira.atlassian.com/browse/BAM-12484
It would be 'useful' if the JRE bundled with the JIRA installer had the referred JAXB impl jar.
I've added this into my addon, however, users upgrading are in a catch22, as it breaks startup before they can upgrade.
