Java SE Runtime Environment 6u16 Update

Sun Microsystems has released update Java SE 6u16. This update does not contain any new fixes for security vulnerabilities. If you have already installed Java SE 6 Update 15, you have the latest security fixes and do not need to upgrade to this release to be current on security fixes.

From the Release Notes, BugID: 6862295, JDWP threadid changes during debugging session (leading to ignored breakpoints) was fixed in this update.

In the event you have any old Java updates prior to 6u10, it is strongly advised that you go to Add/Remove programs and uninstall those versions as the "update mechanism" did not remove those vulnerable versions. Following the uninstall, run JavaRa. Merely unzip JavaRa to your desktop and do the following:
  • Double-click on JavaRa.exe to start the program. (Windows Vista users right-click JavaRa.exe > Select Run as Administrator)
  • Click on Remove Older Versions to remove older versions of Java.

Note: uncheck any pre-checked toolbar and/or software options presented with the update. They are not part of the software update and are completely optional.)

Remember - "A day without laughter is a day wasted."
May the wind sing to you and the sun rise in your heart...
