This release updates Java to the latest version, fixing a security issue. It's packaged in PortableApps.com Format for easy use from any portable device and integration with the PortableApps.com Platform. It's freeware for business and personal use.

Features

jPortable allows you to easily add a Java® runtime environment to your portable device. It automatically works with apps in PortableApps.com Format like OpenOffice.org Portable. No Java® runtime environment needs to be installed on the local machine and no admin rights are required. The JVM will be downloaded directly from Oracle's servers as part of the installation process.

jPortable Launcher

In addition to using jPortable with portable apps packaged in PortableApps.com Format, you can also use our jPortable Launcher to run Java apps in JAR format. It will even automatically portablize the settings of many Java apps.

ERROR: (core.zip > )

Also tried with a downloaded paf

Both Work Here

Just double-checked and both work as expected here. Be sure you're not blocked from downloading Java. If that works, place it in the same directory as jPortable_7_Update_15_online.paf.exe.

Sometimes, the impossible can become possible, if you're awesome!

I downloaded this into the

I downloaded this into the same folder.
I even ran the paf as Administrator.
I get the same error and the installation halts there. I can just Cancel.
I found the core.zip file in the temp folder and I was able to open it with 7zip and test it - says OK. Then why the installers has problems with it?

Install Location

The other possibility is that your install location has different permissions under NTFS. Sounds like this is something specific to your machine or setup as the download and installer are fine.

Please create a new topic on the Other Apps support forum with your install location, operating system, whether it is a new install or upgrade, what type of format the drive is (NTFS, ExFAT, Fat32), any antivirus that is running, etc.

I deleted /Java inside PortableApps/Common files.
Then it installed correctly.

Java update 15

Both Chrome and Firefox are crashing when I try to use this new Java. Can´t I download the jportable 7 update 13 or 14??

Security Risk

Older versions of Java have security issues. You can disable the Java browser plugin with this: http://portableapps.com/apps/utilities/jportable-browser-switch

Security Risk

If I disable the Java Browser plugin I can´t access the page. Can´t you at least make avaiable the last stable version to downgrade the app?

All AVailable

They're all available. But if you use one version back, you will be quite vulnerable. Use it on a specific site you trust while visiting no other sites and then immediately disable it again.
