Try Out the New JRE Update Mechanism
By Roger Yeung on Oct 08, 2008
One of the major features in Java SE 6 Update 10 is the new Java Runtime Platform (JRE) update mechanism. Going forward from 6u10, users will have faster and more robust experiences when updating their Java Runtime Platforms from one update release to another (ie. 6u10 => 6u11). This new Patch-In-Place update mechanism reduces the download size and increase the performance of the update process. In addition, there will only be one Java Runtime Environment left on users system. User will not see a list of JREs in their "Add or Remove Programs" anymore.
We have created a 6u11 dummy along with instructions for you to try this new feature. We would like you to try it and let us know your feedback. Please see http://jdk6.dev.java.net/testPIP.html for more information.
