    JDK 8u20 Update Release Notes
    
    JRE Installation Directory
    
    Starting with JDK 8u20 release, the JRE will be installed in a version specific directory. For example:
    
    C:\Program Files\Java\jre1.8.0_20
    
    The version specific directory naming is intentional and it does not indicate that the JRE install is static.
    
    As with the earlier releases, static JRE install is performed only if STATIC=1 option is passed (via command line or config file) by the user.
