Installing java from Sun

Paul Weiss-2
I notice that in my Jenkins, the latest java version that I can install  
 from sun is update 23, even though update 24 is already out.  What do I  
need to do to be able to download update 24?

We generate the backend JDK listing from their "archival JDK download"
page, which doesn't list the latest.

Maybe we can rely on some heuristics --- like if we find JDK6u23 in
the archive page, we should blindly try JDK6u24 to see if that works?
I suspect that would do well.

I went to see if I could do this in Hudson, only to realize that this  
string comes from
        http://updates.jenkins-ci.org/updates/hudson.tools.JDKInstaller.json
so presumably you are pre-digesting the output from somewhere else before  
it even gets to us.

Is the "digesting" code checked in anywhere?  Is there anything I can do  
to make this happen?

-P

I think it is the following project in github http://github.com/jenkinsci/backend-crawler
(but didn't see a job calling it in ci.Jenkins-ci.org so could be
wrong)

If you could hack it and make it pick up the very latest, that would
be really great.

Looking forward to a patch :-)
