Internet is a wonderful place to have fun with thousands of online games, online utilities and  websites of every kind and for every taste. In order to run all this stuff, sometimes your computer needs, as you know,  special software such as Java RunTime Environment. This nice application is developed by the excellent Sun Microsystem software house, which often releases new versions of it. And here comes the troublesome part. As a matter of fact, after a new update is released, your already installed Java application will notify you with a pop-up message directly in your system tray, inviting you to stay up-to-date. Did you know that after you install a new Java version the previous one does not necessarily get uninstalled?

No Joke! As a matter of fact, it is quite common to have, without being aware, more than one Java version installed. Of course your computer will use the newest one, while the others will just sit there unattended. Each one takes a fair amount of your hard disk space, causing therefore a certain slowness in your computer. JavaRa is meant to solve all these issues!

Reading from the website: “JavaRa is a simple tool that does a simple job: it removes old and redundant versions of the Java Runtime Environment (JRE). Simply select “Check for Updates” or “Remove Older Version” to begin. JavaRa is free under the GNU GPL version two.”

Oh yes, I know what you are thinking about: “Why do I have to use this software when I can use the excellent Add/Remove Programs  feature in Windows XP and Vista?”. Simply, because if you have more than one Java application installed on your computer and you want to use the newest version deleteing the others, you will have to delete everything first, and then re-install the latest one you already had on your PC.
