JavaEE 6 SDK - Now Bundled with Java SE 6u22

Oracle (like Sun) provides the Java EE 6 SDK in 4 main bundles: full or Web Profile, and with or without the JDK bundle. We just updated the JDK bundles to reflect the latest JDK: JavaSE 6u22, which includes performance improvements and security vulnerability fixes.

Although the JDK software is only available in the +JDK bundles, the top level about file (e.g. "about_sdk_web.html") has been updated and all bundles are impacted.

The effort to get this update depends on how you install it and whether you are downloading from scratch or not.  For example,  if you have the previous version and use the GlassFish update center, you will only need to update the module that has that about file; see snapshot.  And, if you are not using a +JDK bundle, that's all there is to the update.

For more details of the update process, see this older and longer entry describing the situation for JavaSE 6u21.  Related posts are tagged updatecenter.

PS: At the time of writing this note, the JavaEE SDK download page still seems to have the u21 bundles, but the Update Center repositories have already been updated.
