Java DB

What is Java DB?  (from Oracle)

Java technology allows you to work and play in a secure computing environment. Java allows you to play online games, chat with people around the world, calculate your mortgage interest, and view images in 3D, just to name a few.

Java DB is a software program developed by Oracle. During setup, the program creates a startup registration point in Windows in order to automatically start when any user boots the PC. Upon being installed, the software adds a Windows Service which is designed to run continuously in the background. Manually stopping the service has been seen to cause the program to stop functing properly. It adds a background controller service that is set to automatically run. Delaying the start of this service is possible through the service manager. It adds a Browser Helper Object (BHO) to Internet Explorer. A scheduled task is added to Windows Task Scheduler in order to launch the program at various scheduled times (the schedule varies depending on the version). The software is designed to connect to the Internet and adds a Windows Firewall exception in order to do so without being interfered with. The setup package generally installs about 191 files and is usually about 10.43 MB (10,939,528 bytes). The installed file hd-updaterservice.exe is the auto-update component of the program which is designed to check for software updates and notify and apply them when new versions are discovered. Relative to the overall usage of users who have this installed on their PCs, most are running Windows 7 (SP1) and Windows XP. While about 24% of users of Java DB come from the United States, it is also popular in India and Germany.
