#354 closed defect (fixed)

Outdated version of Java is installed OSGeo4W Installer

Reported by: rbuffat Owned by: moovida
Priority: critical Component: Installer
Version: Keywords: pkg-java java6


The "Express Desktop Install" option will automatically install java 6 u25 on Windows (u25 release date 2011-03-21). This version has security issues. The newest java 6 version is u45 (release date 2013-04-16). As Oracle does not update java 6 anymore [1], I would recommend to upgrade to java 7 [1]
