      Description

      FULL PRODUCT VERSION :
      at least java 7 and 8

      ADDITIONAL OS VERSION INFORMATION :
      OS X
      10.9 Mavericks
      10.10 Yosemite
      10.11 El Capitan

      EXTRA RELEVANT SYSTEM CONFIGURATION :
      same behavior on different (every) computers, systems and java versions.

      A DESCRIPTION OF THE PROBLEM :
      I tried to disable the auto update function in the java control panel of the OS X preferences by unchecking the given checkbox.

      I apply the change in the checkbox and close the panel (or change to another section of the panel).

      But if I re-open the panel the auto update is checked again.
      (I also get the message window from the updater if an update is available )

      I have to disable the auto update because the FileMaker Server only running with a specific java version. Changing the version could lead to a big mess.

      STEPS TO FOLLOW TO REPRODUCE THE PROBLEM :
      1. uncheck the auto update checkbox in the control panel (via system preferences) of any OS X of the last few years.
      2. Save the changes
      3. close the panel
      4. open the panel again

      EXPECTED VERSUS ACTUAL BEHAVIOR :
      EXPECTED -
      never want to see a message window of the updater again.

      (I do not want that other people to see that window and I do not want them to install that update)
      ACTUAL -
      the update window appears every time if an update is available


      but I have to avoid that to keep the FileMaker Server running.

      REPRODUCIBILITY :
      This bug can be reproduced always.
