Executing an application

I created an application on my machine. Now I want to run it on another machine, which may not have jdk. What is the minimum my user needs to have on his machine to run this application? Assume my user has browsers, and thus jvm.
Is it enough to download jre? Are there other options?

Hi Madam
It is enough to run the application.
Because you have
1. class file (created from another system there you have java
2. JVM
3. going to download the jre.

The following are enough to run the application.
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
