Hi guys, suppose i have JDK + JRE 1.5 update 15 installed. We know that this setup creates a startup entry in Windows which checks for Java Updates automatically on a particular day of each month. We also know that this version of JRE has some security vulnerabilities and it has always been advised to keep all software patched and updated. So my question is that will my JRE get updated automatically to version 1.6 from version 1.5 or do i have to seperately install it?

I dont think JRE will automatically update from JRE 5 update X to JRE 6(after Java 1.4, it is Java 5,6 and not 1.5 or 1.6). You have to manually installed the latest version JRE n JDK.
