      Description

      FULL PRODUCT VERSION :


      ADDITIONAL OS VERSION INFORMATION :
      Mac OS X 10.11.3.

      A DESCRIPTION OF THE PROBLEM :
      The Java updater does not remove the downloaded copy of the installer once it is finished updating Java. This can lead to a large accumulation of Java installers at ~/Library/Application Support/Java/. If keeping an installer after updates is desirable, then a checkbox should be presented in the updater.

      STEPS TO FOLLOW TO REPRODUCE THE PROBLEM :
      Recurve update notice
      Update Java

      EXPECTED VERSUS ACTUAL BEHAVIOR :
      EXPECTED -
      Installer cleans up after itself.
      ACTUAL -
      I have at least 3 copies of the Java installer sitting on my computer, wasting space.

      REPRODUCIBILITY :
      This bug can be reproduced always.
