Java Auto Update (JAU) is a software application that automatically updates the Java Runtime Environment (JRE) on Windows-based computers. JAU was developed by Sun Microsystems in order to provide automatic updating of the JRE. JAU is currently included in the Java SE 6 update 10 release.
The purpose of JAU is to make sure that users have the latest version of the JRE installed on their computer. JAU works by checking the version number of the JRE on a regular basis and downloading any necessary updates if they exist. If no updates are available, then JAU will notify the user about the need to download them.
How does JAU work?
When JAU first starts running, it checks the version number of the current JRE. If the version number matches the version number specified in the registry, then JAU will not perform any actions. However, if the version numbers do not match, then JAU will check the Internet to determine whether any updates are available. If updates are available, then they will be downloaded and installed. Once the updates are installed, JAU will restart the JVM and re-check the version number. If the version number has changed, then JAU will again check the Internet to determine if any updates are available.
If updates are available, then the updates will be downloaded and installed before JAU restarts the JVM. After the JVM is restarted, JAU will once again check the version number of the updated JRE. If the new version number matches the version specified in the registry, JAU will install the updates. Otherwise, JAU will notify the end user that the JRE needs to be updated.
Why should I use JAU?
There are several reasons why you might want to use JAU. First, JAU provides automatic updates to the JRE. Second, JAU makes sure that the JRE is always up to date. Third, JAU helps prevent security vulnerabilities from being exploited. Finally, JAU reduces the risk of having outdated versions of the JRE on your system.
