Thanks for the clarification on how patching the latest Javas would be like via Patch Management Solution!  We have since reached out to our Oracle rep where keeping Java updated in our environment will be too cost prohibitive so I won't need to update it going forward.

Hi Clint,


Downloading the bulletin will create the folders and associations needed to distribute the updates. You will need to download the Java updates, rename them as appliable, and place them in the appropriate foldeers - see this doc for more details:

The last Java I pushed out was 8u191.  So does this mean if I should go and Download Packages for the latest 8u241 from my console, it won't pull down the executables anymore and will create empty package directories (for 32 & 64-bit versions) on my server?  I do have an OTN login and can download the updates but was wondering about what downloading Java 8 Update 241 via the SMC will actually do now.
