This week's book giveaway is in the Mac OS forum. We're giving away four copies of a choice of "Take Control of Upgrading to Yosemite" or "Take Control of Automating Your Mac" and have Joe Kissell on-line! See this thread for details.
Seriously, an installer is going to be a *lot* less trouble. I believe it will even give you the option whether to install a JRE or not. Even if it doesn't, and if it doesn't just update the existing JRE, you can always just uninstall the old JRE. You're making a big problem for yourself.
