no installer for coporate desktop scheduled ?
Reading the bugs to be fixed in Java 6:
and comparing it to "Response" blog:
where a user osbald commented:
"Needing to have local admin privileges to install the jre is a frequent problem we have with rollouts." (towards the end of commonets)
This has been a bug repored on "Un-official WebStart" page since 2001, w/ some workarounds.
Having Java JRE installable on corporate users desktops is a big priority.
(for Unix heads: In a windows shop, the coporate user is does not have admin priviledges, the network admin does. Flash and Firefox install fine w/ user rights, but not Java, since it needs some rights even for JRE. This is less of an issue in Unix shops where users tend to have some sudo rights. It be nice if Windows corporate users could use and install Java application.)
