Java Runtime Environment 7 Update 67

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.

Pretty much agree it's useless for any regular users.

Haven't had this thing installed since something like Windows 98 and then didn't take long to realize I not only didn't need, but didn't want it!! :x

Probably the one and only bigger POS than flash player, but at least that's needed every once in a blue moon!

What html 5 has to do with java? Sometime it's like people don't even know java is not only for web applets. In fact the last time i've seen a java applet was probably 2-3 years ago. You can probably still find some of them but not on the web sites i'm visiting on a regular basis. You can install java without installing the browser plugins. Lot of programs requiring java these days come with their own bundled jre so usually there no need to install java but it's still used for multiplatform dev.

If you want to play Minecraft then no it's not useless. Just don't switch off the browser plugins to make things more secure.

Here on Brazil EVERY single bank and government site that has some kind of "login" is heavy on java. And the list would go on.. It'd completely impossible to do anything related to work without it.
I always wondered that... so this is not the normal worldwide?

Been uninstalling Java on all the computers I support, it's not needed much now that I've found. And with recent outbreaks of viruses targeting it...

The one request I had for it, I managed to use the Java Portable version! (Y)

SWEET another Java update good news is that is probably all for today

Bad news is there will likely be another update tomorrow

yeah the updates are having all sorts of horrible problems here at work. every time there is an update it causes us to have to manually reconfigure a bunch of settings for a lot of our users.

Whys that? We develop all java at work and not many updates kill our software. It took a big jump from 6 to 7 to kill our software. Some GUI classes were deprecated and the signing off applets annoyed customers.

Took two, two week sprints to focus on just updates but worked out for us. Haven't tested 8 yet. Thats on deck.

As IT and being a programmer, I support technology a little more then most IT admins do. But I know sysadmins that assist their Tech departments in testing too.

For us it is for from perfect. We've had a lot of issues updating with the MSI. We have to run an uninstall script, which has be updated each release, then re-install.

It used to be just update the MSI and install over the top. It was like that for a LONG time, until oracle took it over.

A little while ago they changed their update practice. Instead of being on an as-needed basis, now they are scheduled every quarter (at least) plus the supplementary as-needed... so you're basically guaranteed to have to update your Java kits every 1-3 months.

I would be nice if they were more seamless. For us it is for from perfect. We've had a lot of issues updating with the MSI. We have to run an uninstall script, which has be updated each release, then re-install.

these java updates are getting ridiculous

Why? They do like 4 or 5 updates a year. Windows gets far more yet nobody complains every Patch Tuesday about all the updates!

Also you don't have to install every update. Yes it is obviously a good idea if you can but in a secured environment (up to date Windows, A/V software, etc.) then you should be fine.
