        Description

        Demos were removed from the package tar.Z bundle(JDK-7066713). There is a separate Demos&Samples bundle beginning with 7u2 b08 and 6u32 b04, but Solaris patches still contain SUNWj7dmo/SUNWj6dmo. The 64 bit packages are SUNWj7dmx/SUNWj6dmx.

        Demo packages remain in the existing Solaris patches; however, just because they are there doesn't mean that they are installed. They will be patched only if the end user has them installed on the system.

        [http://docs.oracle.com/javase/7/docs/webnotes/install/solaris/solaris-jdk.html](http://docs.oracle.com/javase/7/docs/webnotes/install/solaris/solaris-jdk.html)

        The link above is to the Solaris OS Install Directions for the JDK. The SUNWj7dmx package is mentioned in the tar.Z portion of the directions. This is confusing to some as, according to the cited bug, the SUNWj7dmx package shouldn't be part of the tar.Z bundle.
