Question Java 119MB! WTF?

OK so I went on Java's site and was going to DL the one for like 7MB. So I did. After I went to check it out in my start-controll panel-add and remove programs and I see Java is installed at 119MB?
What gives?

It was compressed before you downloaded it.

Java is like IE was is the olden days. The 7 MB download is the downloader/installer only. It bring the rest down when you run it.

Is your connection so fast you didn't notice?

Wait until you get the 'update me!' nags from Java too! Then you will truly love the product.

I'm kinda sad Java did not pan out. It would have been nice to have an end all solution to web development.

DD, Sorry it didn't pan out for you. It did for me - kept me very gainfully employed for the last 5 years, and given the number of apps we have running with it, and looking at the job listings, I'll be employed for lots longer writing Java code.

By pan out I ment as an all in one solution. A plaform independent solution. That was the whole idea behind it. Sun just could never make it trully independent.

I guess when you talk about the client part, there are some platform differences, but when you say "web development" I think server-side Java, and I develop on Linux and deploy on Windows, and it all works for me. Java 6 is supposed to be even better, with OpenGL graphics and such. I use IntelliJ for an IDE, and the UI works great cross-platform.

IntelliJ? I will have to check it out sounds promissing.

www.jetbrains.com

It's expensive ($150 I think) but I love it. Eclipse is pretty good too, but I can't figure out the whole workspaces concept.

edit: $250 for the Personal License. $150 is upgrade.
