Java Runtime Environment 7 Update 60

Java software allows you to run applications called "applets" that are written in the Java programming language. These applets allow you to have a much richer experience online than simply interacting with static HTML pages.

Java Plug-in technology, included as part of the Java  Runtime Environment, Standard Edition (JRE), establishes a connection between popular browsers and the Java platform. Java allows applications to be downloaded over a network and run within a guarded sandbox. Security restrictions are easily imposed on the sandbox. Many cross platform applications also require Java to operate properly.

Anybody know when Java 8 will supplant Java 7 as their default "recommended" version? Or when Java 7 might stop being supported at all? Given the pain that Java updates cause me where I work, It'd be nice to have a heads up... we're still running Java 7 Update 45 because we have a business app that's widely used that has issues with anything newer.

What do we say to the Java update? "Not today".

Who still even installs Java? I haven't installed the Java runtime on *any* of my machines in about a decade, when I realized there's nothing I use that needs it.

These days, if something needs Java, I move onto something else. In all this time, nobody's managed to convince me that I've missed out on anything.

Runescape and Minecraft both use Java. While Runescape may not have that big of a userbase, it is big enough to keep them running.

Minecraft has an unholy big userbase.

Yeah, like I wrote, nobody's managed to convince me that I've missed out on anything.

well, in my country if you want to deliver IRS and other financial and social security stuff then it's a must. :/

the problema is not Java, but the Java plugin.

That's ridiculous. What government official allowed this to happen? Vote these idiots out.

If I had no choice, that would go in a VM and destroyed after I'm done.

Of course. But given that you can't have one without the other, then we're just arguing semantics.

Well if you don't use anything Java based then obviously there is no reason to install it :)

have you used java in the last year? you can disable the browser plugin entirely on java now right through the control panel

You missed this, right? I started with:

Whether I can disable it or not, why would I install it in the first place if I haven't had a use for it in 10+ years?

And why i that? those apps are secure, certified and digitally signed. Also more and more companies are using java to offload secure apps.

My beef with that is there isn't another viable choise (other then to deliver in paper, that is), so Java is installed on-demand and just in those computers that really need to, to minimize the attack vector.

There are still a few things which can't be done otherwise (even in HTML5). For example we have an applet which lets users sign digitally using smartcards locally, and if you want a general, cross-platform way to do it Java is the only option.

new version numbering rules. The security updates skip by five after the next version (java 8) is released.....something like that? I don't remember the specifics.
