You might want to check out its home page which explains in detail what it's all about.

I am sorry But I am not able to understand what it is by reading the page you pointed. I have alredy read it when I posted the message.Is it a set of tools which are provided to facilitate the update of java JRE or the API and also to optimize the some features(eg:- Java3D programs) when java programs are run and facilitate the execution of some Java Programs(eg:-Applets)

It's an update to the Java 6 JRE that will be released later this year, and which is supposed to significantly improve the desktop Java experience. Some of its features are quicker startup, better GUI performance, smaller download sizes, better applet support and faster updates.

I want to know how the process goes on.It's home page says that it is an Update release.Then some tools are listed saying that Update N program focuses on the following(The Deployment Toolkit,Kernel online installer ,Quick Starter......)

Is this an ongoing process .Is a new, milestone or a version of Update N released whenever the JRE is added with new features and improvements

I would guess that it's just something like Java 6 update 4, but since they don't know yet how many updates (e.g. for security reasons) there will be before it, they just named it N for now. In the end, it will be update 5, 6, 7, ...
