Blocklist not updating enchanted by its charm possibly dating back to 1750
One of the side effects of silent JDK installation is that it does not install the public JRE. Apparently some users have been using the without our documentation or approval. As a workaround to the JDK not installing the public JRE when in silent mode, we recommend also bundling up and launching the stand-alone JRE installer from the JSC download site.
We intend to provide full silent JDK installer support in 6u15, under the following CR: 6845077 - silent JDK should install JRE/Java DB silently In 6u14 Java Web Start, if you specify an insecure Java system property in a sandbox JNLP file, Java Web Start fails to launch and notifies that JARs in the sandbox JNLP file are not signed.
A workaround is to remove the insecure property (which was ignored by all previous versions of Java Web Start).
Refer to CR 6845294 This feature release does not contain any new fixes for security vulnerabilities to its previous release, Java SE 6 Update 13.
The full internal version number for this update release is 1.6.0_14-b08 (where "b" means "build"). 6u14 specifies the following security baselines for use with Java Plug-in technology: On October 30, 2008, Java SE 1.4.2 reached its end of service life with the release of 1.4.2_19.
For more information, refer to Timezone Data Versions in the JRE Software .
For 6u14, support has been added for the following system configurations: Refer to the Supported System Configurations page.
A system-wide blacklist will be distributed with each JRE release.
On the other hand, the app has not been updated for a long time.
But, thanks to its intuitive layout, less experienced users can quickly figure out how to work with Peer Block.
JDK and JRE service tags allow installed instances of the JDK and JRE to be discovered and registered under a user's account on Sun Connection.
Support for blacklisting signed jar files has been added to 6u14.
