  I work in a laboratory area with a dozen or more different java programs on the desktops computers and I have found that it is best not to install the 64 bit java client.  It is best to put the 32 bit on all platforms.  I am sure others here will disagree with me.  I tried the 64 bit client and it was incompatible with older java programs.

Dear all,

I'm a bit in stress and cannot weed out the page at http://wpkg.org/Java which is probably one of the most complex pages on the wiki  :-).  Does anyone have a more recent package description to upgrade both 32 and 64 bit hosts to the latest java release, that's to say jre7u11 according to http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/java/javase/downloads/jre7-downloads-1880261.html ?  There aren't any msi's there, and there's no package on the site without msi's for 64bit hosts.

I'm pretty sure (hopeful) someone allready has a more up to date package description; if you mail it to me, I'll update the page on the wiki happily!

Kind regards,
