When running the Migration Toolkit without a JRE installed, it tells you that you to "Please make sure you have the Java Runtime Environment (JRE) 5.0 Update 8 installed."

It should provide a link for downloading the JRE (http://java.sun.com/javase/downloads/index.jsp), and it should also probably say "Update 8 (or later)". The current release in Update 9.

How to repeat:
Run Migration Toolkit without having a JRE available.

Suggested fix:
Add a download link and "(or later)" to the text.

Many thanks for writing a bug report. We are on the way to implement full functionality of MySQL Migration Tool into MySQL Workbench. We won't add this feature request anymore.
