Java SE Development Kit 6 Update 10

What is Java SE Development Kit 6 Update 10?

The JDK is a development environment for building applications, applets, and components using the Java programming language. Java Platform, Standard Edition or Java SE is a widely used platform for programming in the Java language. It is the Java Platform used to deploy portable applications for general use. Java SE consists of a virtual machine, which must be used to run Java programs, together with a set of libraries.


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. 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 primary executable is named javaws.exe. The setup package generally installs about 43 files and is usually about 28.15 MB (29,520,536 bytes).
