Java install - online or offline?
« on: June 22, 2007, 07:51:09 AM »
discovered (using http://secunia.com/s...inspector/?task=load)
I had already have two [older] versions of Java installed so will probably uninstall both & start from scratch.

But which version of Java to install ???
   Windows XP/Vista/2000/2003 Online * filesize: ~7.1MB    
 
   Windows XP/Vista/2000/2003 Offline * filesize: 13.16 MB
(http://www.java.com/...nload/manual.jsp#win)

(I have contacted Java already but fear a long wait ...)

I always pick the offline version no matter what I install, since the "online" installers tend to download other stuff at install time. With an "offline" install, you have all the files you need.
