Java SE Development Kit 6 Update 15 64-bit

What is Java SE Development Kit 6 Update 15 64-bit?

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.


During setup, the program creates a startup registration point in Windows in order to automatically start when any user boots the PC. 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 primary executable is named javaws.exe. The setup package generally installs about 52 files and is usually about 33.13 MB (34,736,752 bytes).
