Java, on the other hand, is a programming language from Sun Microsystems that is designed for use on multiple different operating systems. You have to download and install Java in order to run Java programs (get it at www.Java.com). For more discussion, see my article
Sun’s Java installs an automatically-running program that checks for updates and tells you when updates are ready.
Should you update Java? Generally, yes. Just like web browsers, occasionally updates add functions — most of the time they fix bugs and security issues. By the way, the latest version of Java is 126.96.36.199.
