Don't quote me but I don't recall having a problem. Again this was 2 years ago. My school has moved onto "Canvas" which seems to be HTML5 centric (and a really confusing UI at first).

From a home user perspective, what exactly is Java even used for? I rarely see it anywhere.

They said the same thing about the last exploit, only for another one to crop up in the 'fixed' release.

I think I'll wait a while longer before returning to Java 7.

I have some reference materials that require java with a web browser, and at least three executable .jar files that I use on a regular basis.

If you need java, you probably know you need java.

Java 6 works just as well for what I do, so I'll stick with it a while longer. It's actually more usable, since I can completely disable caching without java security preferences being reset every time I use something.

Why does the minecraft developer refuse to port the program to something other then java?

I just saw this in an ANIME, This must mean the old Java is actually fine, and they want people to get ready to DL the new Java with the DHS/NSA hooks in it. rolleyes.gif J/K I'm sure those guys don't need Java to take a look at anything on your computer if they feel so inclined at any time.

I did get affected by this as well, as I use Java in some of my HTML pages on one of my websites to launch the Unity3D web player for others to view Alpha content for my Mad Scientist experiments in 3D. Now I have to rewrite it to not use Java in the browser. Bah

This is isn't Java or Minecraft... don't crap on things you don't understand.

Minecraft can be a massively CPU intensive program...Java is a good base for such software... even the best machines could be bogged down depending on how it was configured...

Do you care to elaborate, or is this just another baseless non fact or any sources to back up what you mention? Are you saying that the i5-2500k OC to 4.6ghz is too weak for minecraft lol? This is the most absurd thing I have heard all day, and if you do think some how it would be to weak, THEN NEVER FEAR, IT'S WINTER HERE! I live temps of 2-6F ill open a window and bring my cpu up to 5.5ghz . So seeing as you made the off hand statement that I don't understand. lets see if you understand post some sources please. biggrin.gif

Consider your self called out my little amigo!

I too would eagerly like to understand why a 4.6 GHz quad core CPU would struggle with mine craft if not the fact that virtual machines waste CPU cycles.

If Minecraft isn't running on your i5 at all, then there is something wrong. I've run minecraft on 5 year old core 2 duos with integrated graphics just fine.

The reason why Java exists is to make programs cross compatible. That's why minecraft can work on windows, mac, or linux is because mojang only had to code for Java, not native code. Yes this is performance robbing, but the advantage of working with java is that you only have to code once, and it can run on pretty much anything.
