When I install a new J2SE version then there are 3 java runtimes:

1.) C:\Program files\Java\jdk\bin\java.exe

2.) C:\Program files\Java\jdk\jre\bin\java.exe

3.) C:\Program files\Java\jre6\bin\java.exe


Ok, the difference between the first and the second java.exe is that the first is WITH included debugging info compiled
and the second not. But what is the difference between the second and the third java.exe?

I suspect the installer and installation path.

$ cmp --verbose --print-bytes C:\Program files\Java\jdk\jre\bin\java.exe
C:\Program files\Java\jre6\bin\java.exe

The modern conservative is engaged in one of man's oldest exercises in moral philosophy; that is,
the search for a superior moral justification for selfishness.
