Updating java runtime
Java software allows you to run applications called "applets" that are written in the Java programming language.
These applets allow you to have a much richer experience online than simply interacting with static HTML pages.
What is the best way to do this and is it possible?
I guess that the application can download a new file and start it. know when the new application is started and then exit. I've written a Java application that can load plugins at runtime and start using them immediately, inspired by a similar mechanism in j Edit.
I'm not quite an expert on that part, I've made it work but it wasn't easy.
This way you don't have to worry about forcing an exit of your application.
The Java SE Runtime Environment contains the Java virtual machine,runtime class libraries, and Java application launcher that arenecessary to run programs written in the Java programming language.
It is not a development environment and does not contain developmenttools such as compilers or debuggers.

If your application is web based, and if it is important that they have an up to date client, then you can also do version checks while the application runs.
