If I installed Java (or an older version), will the App Store update my local installation, even though I installed, and updated it outside of that?

  • Where and how did you install Java6? – klanomath Nov 13 '14 at 17:01
  • @klanomath I installed Java6 in the default path, supplied from the link (apple) above. No other version of Sun Java is installed. – goodguys_activate Nov 13 '14 at 17:02

Java6 provided by Apple should be updated by the App Store, given any newer versions will be released (which i doubt).

(Tested with Mavericks & Apple Java RE 1.6.0_51 in a VM. It was updated to Apple Java RE 1.6.0_65 by App Store)

Java7 & Java8 provided by Oracle use their own update services.
