The New Patch-In-Place Feature
The download number for the 6u11 dummy build is fairly small. Please try this feature if you haven't already as the dummy build will be pulled shortly. Your responses matter to us in evaluating the effectiveness of this EA program.
In Java SE 6 Update 10, we introduce a new Patch-In-Place feature which provides a cleaner and faster upgrade experience. This feature reduces the download size when a user migrates from one update release to another, and it will also increase the performance of the update. After updating from 6u10 to 6u11, the user will only be left with one 6u11 JRE.
