Java Runtime Environment (JRE) Addon Pack
Posted 13 October 2010 - 08:21 AM
It did not download the latest JRE. It still has 6 update 18.

You need to follow the link given on the first page and download yourself the latest Java and place it in the folder - \modules\AddOns\SunJava_x86_files - this is for x86. You need to delete all older versions of Java in the folder. Also, overwrite the .apm and .rti files with the new files as well. I like to delete the old files by hand personally - the old .exe, .apm, and .rti just in case the new files names are slightly different - in this case they wont get deleted and the release will be unofficial.
Java has made it impossible to grab a reusable link this is why the manual approach is needed - for now anyway. Unless you need to have the latest Java in your AutoPatcher release you could simply download the full installer, install using the switch in the .apm file for a silent install, and reboot when installation finishes.

C:\jre-6u22-windows-i586-s.exe /s IEXPLORER=1 MOZILLA=1 REBOOT=ReallySuppress
This will perform a silent install. You want to reboot when the install process is finished, the .apm file waits 120 seconds to complete.

Accepting that recommendation as valid I would now recommend AutoPatcher's APM files be edited so that if the user runs AutoPatcher in a 64-bit environment both versions of the Java runtime are listed as installed or not installed with the option to install both.
Also, this same thinking and procedure applies to the Adobe Flash Players - in a 64-bit OS both the 32-bit and 64-bit versions should be installed - for the same reason given above.

In a 64-bit system there are two browsers installed: one in \Program Files\Internet Explorer (the 64-bit version) and one in \Program Files (x86)\Internet Explorer (the 32-bit version). Users are capable of selecting either for use. I'm not sure why you say the 32-bit is the default - I have not had it act that way. If the 64-bit version has been invoked and the user selects Microsoft Update - an error nessage appears saying to switch to the 32-bit version - is that what you're assuming is the default?
Anyway, because both versions are available to any user than knows where to look it only makes sense to offer both Java runtimes - just list them as separate items: 32-bit for one and 64-bit for the other.
Same for Adobe Flash if/when it goes final for the 64-bit version.

because the one that runs when you hit any link in a software (like msn) is the x86 version. also, the one that has the shortcuts set by default is the x86 version. in fact, x64 systems comes with both versions, but if you wanna run the x64 version, you have to look for it, since the one that is under everyone face is the x86 version

for sure. that is the way that is being done. the only one thing that happens is that the user has to select it to be installed. so, if the user has an x64 system and doesn't wish deploy the x64 version for certain softwares, he will not. by other hand, if an user that is running x64 and is running an x64 browser wishes deploy both, then all that the user needs to do is check an extra module to be installed

JavaSE points to v6u23 which is where post #133 also leads /// JavaJRE still points to v6u22
Also, we have had the 'toolbar' versus 'no toolbar' discussion before, if I remember it wasn't a consistant theory. Since it is easier for users to simply install Java on their own I'll wait and use the old link when it gets updated - seems the easiest thing to do.

Java software for your computer, or the Java Runtime Environment, is also referred to as the Java Runtime, Runtime Environment, Runtime, JRE, Java Virtual Machine, Virtual Machine, Java VM, JVM, VM, or Java download.
Java Platform, Standard Edition has an link stating that it has 2 versions: JDK and JRE. the JRE link goes to u23. if the first link says that is also JRE, both are the same, right? but it may be just me, a lot confused with the way that SUN/ORACLE etc names it...

all the executables shall be saved into modules\AddOns\SunJava_x86_files
don't forget: if you mix old versions with the current one, your release will turn into unofficial
just an warning: the standard download site is still java.com. the modules for those that download from ORACLE is just an convenience, nothing more than that
