Re: Upgrading JDK version in a desktop application

No, just having the installer run on a new JDK will not remove the previous version. You would need to specifically craft a windows installer executable that communicated this fact to the windows system, to get the changes picked up in 'add/remove programs'. You will probably have to find a more windows-specific forum to get better details there. Also, if you are a business (or even if you aren't) you should be *very careful* about the licensing of the java environment you are including ... namely, whether you are legally allowed to do so or not.
