      Description

        * Scenarios:
        - Install latest jre 8-b83 promotion
        - Install latest jre 7u21-b10 promotion
        - Select to disable jre 8 from the JCP-->Java-->View-->User
        - Uninstall jre7u21

        There is no way to enable jre 8 again from the Java control panel..
        Go back to JCP-->Java-->View-->User and the jre8 enable checkbox is NOT selectable.
        It is a dead end as the installed jre 8 is not usable from user perspective,

        If trying to invoke an applet in this case, there is exception:

        Exception in thread "Thread-2" java.lang.IndexOutOfBoundsException: Index: 0
