After further consultation and consideration, the Oracle JDK 6 End of Public Updates will be extended through February, 2013. This means that the last publicly available release of Oracle JDK 6 is to be released in February, 2013.
It’s important to highlight that, as we establish a steady two year cadence for major releases, End of Public Update events for major versions will become more frequent. As a reminder, moving forward, Oracle will stop providing public updates of a major JDK version once all of the following criteria have been met:
• Three years after the GA of a major release • One year after the GA of a subsequent major release • Six months after a subsequent major release has been established as the default JRE for end-user desktops on java.com
For more information see the FAQ on OTN.
