Java JRE?

How do I know if I need the Java JRE included in a Spark install?

You will need it if you havent got a high enough JRE installed on your client. To see if you need it, open up a command window and type java -version. This will display the JRE version running on your client. Typically you will want java 1.5. or 1.6 installed.

Thanks.

If I install Spark with JRE, will it update a currently installed Java client?

What version of Java does Spark install if no Java is already installed on the computer?

No, it only installs JRE to \Spark\jre folder. And only Spark can use that java, unless you edit your system variable paths i think. So original JRE will stay in the same version. And if you want Spark to use system JRE and not its own, yiou should just delete Spark\jre folder.

It installs what is currently bundled in setup file. This is not necessary the latest JRE version available.
