    Description

      FULL PRODUCT VERSION :
      N/A

      A DESCRIPTION OF THE PROBLEM :
      The installation notes at http://java.sun.com/javase/6/webnotes/install/jdk/install-windows-64.html (or http://java.sun.com/javase/6/webnotes/install/jre/install-windows-64.html) state
      "This procedure installs the JDK, but not the Java Plugin, Java Web Start or public Java Runtime Environment (which are not yet available for 64-bit Windows). "

      Yet the release notes at http://java.sun.com/javase/6/webnotes/6u12.html state
      "This release supports the New Java Plugin and Java Webstart on AMD64 architecture, on Windows platforms"

      So one says it has the plugin and webstart and the other says it does not...
