    If one installs the current JDK7 preview and then searches
    the registry for »CAFEEFAC« one should find a huge number of
    registry keys, most of them with the same contents.

    In the web, I can read that this is intended to allow
    applications to query JREs of a specific version and patch
    level. But still, doesn't all these keys look as if they
    clutter the registry?

    Could you just try out typing java -version in command line? That could be the version used.
