Hi guy,
It's said that Java SE 6 Update N(Consumer JRE) will be about 2M,
but I downloaded it in the download page, and found that it's more than 14M.
It seems that the entity isn't Consumer JRE, but general JRE, is it?

Thanks!

a cup of Java, cheers!
Sha Jiang

The smaller download size that you are looking for will be explained with build 10.

The new Kernel feature, that achieves the smaller consumer download is listed on the hub page:
https://jdk6.dev.java.net/6uNea.html

"The Kernel installation mode (not available yet in this build) lets first time Java users run applets and Web Start applications without waiting for the whole JRE download. While the default Kernel installation will work with existing Java applets, application developers have the ability to select libraries that should be installed with the kernel, before the rest of the JRE is installed on the end user's system."

Expect more info soon!
