    Hi,

    I would like to know if there is some way to setup Java Runtime Environment to check automatically for new updates.

    Regards

    There's no reason to have it automatically check for updates. The less programs you have doing that, the better.

    If you want to stay advised of any new java update, just visit this site on a regular basis.

    You didn't mention which version of Windows you're using, and if it's 32-bit or 64-bit.

    If you have an accumulation of Java versions in your list of installed programs, you should uninstall them and just keep the current version.

    Why not ? I think it is important to have last version of Java because of the security reason. And I think with other programs too, so I don't agree with you.

    I pretended to not visit any webpage to do it (specially not official) but if it is the only way, OK.

    I am using 32-bit version and I have only the last version of Java (6 Update 20).

    Go to Java in the Control Panel to open the applet window, then click Update(tab).

    Make sure that "Check for updates automatically" is selected, then click Apply - OK.

    You can also click the "Update now" button to see if an update is available.
