After the latest Java vulnerability debacle I decided to remove it completely from my system (lubuntu 12.04). I did this through the Lubuntu Software Centre. However, when I run Update Manager I still receive suggested important security updates for Java.
I would like to update java on some of my servers running Solaris 9 & 10. The most common version of java on the servers is java 5. I would like to remove this older version and install java 6, even though it is fully patched. The main program that uses java 6 is NetBackup. This program is not patching their embedded java fast enough.
I'd like to be able to remove webapps from my system, I don't want any of the packages associated with it. But trying to remove it I am told there are several other packages that require it. Please change this, I don't like the idea of webapps and I want it gone.
I'm tired of getting annoying popups that don't explain anything asking me to install something!
