Editors' Review

Java Standard Edition (SE) is a free software bundle that provides the Java Runtime Environment and the libraries and components you need to display a wide range of programs and Web content on 32-bit Windows PCs. It includes the Java plug-in for Web browsers and Java Web Start for deploying standalone apps written in Java over the Internet or other networks. Java SE Version 7 Update 55 addresses 37 security vulnerabilities.

Pros

You probably need it: Lots of Web sites and programs depend on Java to run. Up-to-date Java libraries and components keep your content fresh.

Now with JavaFX: Java version 7 Update 55 includes JavaFX, the latest software platform and the new standard for Java-rich Internet applications (RIAs).

Cons

Security issues: Some computer security experts have raised warning flags about vulnerabilities in Java and its components. Java 7.55 addresses many security issues, but staying informed will help you stay safe.

What's up with 8? A major update to Java SE, version 8, has also been released. Which version is right for you depends on your system, online habits, and other factors.

Bottom Line

Java SE Version 7 Update 55 installed easily and seamlessly in our system. Most of what Java does only becomes apparent when it's missing or disabled, so keep your installation up to date.
