    LANDESK Security and Patch News     



    ·    (March 4, 2015) Java SE 8 update 40 has been released by Oracle. Java SE 8u40 is the latest Patch Set Update, containing new features.
    JDK 8u40 release contains the following enhancements to the Java Packager:

    Command-line arguments can be passed to self-contained applications. Default arguments are defined when the package is created, which can be overridden by the user when the application is started. See Passing Arguments to a Self-Contained Application.
    File associations can be set up when a self-contained application is installed so that the operating system automatically runs the application for registered file extensions or MIME types. See Associating Files with a Self-Contained Application.
    Multiple entry points are supported for self-contained applications, which enables a suite of products to be bundled into the same application package. See Supporting Multiple Entry Points.
