Auto Update Sun-JDK possible under Fedora 9?

Hi friends,

I'd like to know some way in which I can enable the auto update of the Sun-JDK which I'm using to run applets under Fedora.

I had tried the OpenJDK but was not at all impressed with its performance with some applets.

I currently have a working Sun-JDK installation but it has gone out of date already. I'd like a setting somewhat similar to windows where the JRE updates itself automatically as soon as a new version is released. In my case, I will have to separately download JDK from Sun's website and then install it, and then remove the old version. I don't want to do all that manually.

What should I do? Is there any way?
