Java 6 Update 21 Build 07 Released

By July 27, 2010

Follow me on:

Following on from the problems that Eclipse users were experiencing with Java 6 Update 21, Oracle has rebuilt the release. If you look at the release notes it's now up to build 7. This build regresses the rebranding of the files' Company Name from "Oracle" back to "Sun Microsystems, Inc.".

This should mean that any Eclipse users who haven't upgraded to Java 6 Update 21 won't notice any problems when they do and for those who started using build 6 you can just download and reinstall with the latest Java update. It also gives Eclipse (and any other similarly affected applications) a chance to update their code in time for the release of JDK 7 when the rebranding changes will go ahead.

The release notes on the oracle site only refer to build 6 not build 7 as suggested by this blog.

It is not clear if build 7 is available yet.

Good spot. It looks like they’ve just migrated the download section from the old Sun site to the Oracle domain. In the move they’ve inadvertently regressed back to the Build 6 release noes. I’ve just downloaded the JDK package again and it is Build 7.
