        Description

        Management has decided to remove functionality from Java Web Start and Java Plugin to Auto Download the JRE using the AutoDL servlet, if the requested one is not locally available.

        1.) Recent security changes have caused us to make only the latest jre available thru AutoDL.
        2.) Recent builds no longer contain ".sh" installers on linux and solaris, and since AutoDL servlet only returns ".sh" files on those platforms, so now only windows platform has any version(s) available.

        Windows platform has auto-update which is the preferred way to update to the latest JRE.
