Editors' Review

+

Oracle's Java Runtime Environment (JRE) for 64-bit Windows PCs contains the Java Virtual Machine, software libraries, components, and plug-ins that tons of programs, media, and Web sites need to display advanced multimedia content and animation. Version 7 Update 55 of Java's Standard Edition addresses 37 security vulnerabilities while reducing the frequency of security notifications in certain installations.

Pros:

Answers the 64-bit question: Running 32-bit Java on 64-bit Windows involves compromises, such as Update issues. This version of Java is designed specifically for 64-bit Windows.

Plug-ins: The Java plug-in is critical to many Web applications, while Java Web Start deploys standalone apps over networks.

JavaFX: JRE now includes Java FX version 2.2.55.

Cons:

Security: Some computer experts warn of vulnerabilities in Java that updates have failed to correct.

8 is enough? Java SE 8 is a major update that was released prior to version 7.55's release, though a major security update to version 8 has also been released. Confused? We don't blame you, but Java always bears watching, so check on your system's needs before upgrading.

Bottom Line:

If you're running 64-bit Windows, check your Java version and update it if necessary to JRE SE 7.55 for security and stability.

"VERY vulnerable to malware!"

July 30, 2014  |  By mikoyangurevich15

 |  Version: Java Runtime Environment (JRE) (64-Bit) 7 Update 65

Pros

It does help with some web and desktop applications.I,personally avoid these.

Cons

Lousy security measures.They can`t update this thing fast enough.Or thoroughly enough,either.

Summary

It`s really not worth using it.The risks are just to high.Think twice before installing it.Seriously.

"Wrong Version!"

April 23, 2014  |  By BearPuppy

 |  Version: Java Runtime Environment (JRE) (64-Bit) 7 Update 55

Pros

As I was checking that all my plugins were up-to-date, I came across a site that said there was a new version available - 8 update 5, which I successfully updated to. But, see the Summary below.

Cons

Besides the unclear upgrade path, none that I'm aware of.

Summary

A few days after updating to version 8, I get the CNET announcement that Version 7, Update 55 was available. Wanting to use the latest version I ran the Version 7 update, at the end of which the installer stated that I was using the latest version - 8, update 5!

"Works great for me"

March 18, 2014  |  By aissacf2014

 |  Version: Java Runtime Environment (JRE) (64-Bit) 7 Update 51

Pros

Works great for me. Finally Oracle has tweaked the security settings to be safe by default. And now devs have started crypto signing their applets (ie Keepvid.com to download YT vids). Good change! Also Vuze, Jitsi and the rest of my Java desktop apps run just fine.

Cons

None if you use this offline installer.

Summary

Beefed up security. Now devs have started crypto signing their applets (ie Keepvid.com to download YT vids). Good change! Also Vuze, Jitsi and the rest of my Java desktop apps run just fine.

"Will not work even with system restore"

February 06, 2014  |  By ljs26

 |  Version: Java Runtime Environment (JRE) (64-Bit) 7 Update 51

Pros

Absolutely none.

Cons

Lack of support unless I want to pay $25/hour for it. I have tried to download it 8 separate times without any success. If I could find an alternative I would get it in a heart beat.

Summary

Very, very disappointed with java. I always thought of it as a company with integrity. Guess I was wrong.
