    Default latest java update

    Hi there, I recently installed JDK 1.7u40 and installed NetBeans 7.3.1. I turned off automatic updates in the java control panel, but I am still getting a message in my notification area saying java update available (1.7u45) ready to install. I want to know if I install the update will I have to reconfigure NetBeans, the PATH environment variable etc? Thankyou.

    It will only update the runtime (IIRC).
    The JDK will stay the same, so you shouldn't have any problems.
    Please do not ask for code as refusal often offends.

    Even if it would update the runtime of the JDK, you wouldn't need to reconfigure anything since the updater will replace/upgrade the one that is already there.

    But no, I've always had to upgrade the JDK myself. Only the separate runtime I have installed through java.com auto-updates itself, which is fine with me because that one is specifically for browser integration purposes.
