Java SE for Business: no statistics gathering is being demanded for windows offline installer

    Details

    • Subcomponent:
    • Introduced In Build:
      b03
    • Introduced In Version:

    • OS:

      Backports

        Description

        The windows offline installer gathers and sends statistic data over the internet.
        See http://java.com/en/data/index.jsp
        Customers running and paying for Java SE for Business do not like this behaviour.
        In particular when running the windows offline installer silently, there
        should not be such data transfer. Apart from security concerns, the is also
        a risk that a massive upgrade of tens of thousands of pcs will fail due to
        network and connection issues. This has already happened and caused the need
        of manual corrections.
        Similar to autoupdate, which is disabled for JFB, gathering statistics should
        be turned off for business environments. I think this is a legitimate request
        which should be implemented for both 5.0, 6 and 7.
