Description
As part of Oracle's rebranding of Sun's product, the publisher name was changed to "Oracle" in 6u21 JRE. But it was reset to "Sun Microsystems, Inc." to fix Eclipse issue. See CR http://monaco.sfbay.sun.com/detail.jsf?cr=6969236 for details.

With 6u22 b01, publisher name is still set to "Oracle", it should be "Sun Microsystems, Inc.".

Testsuite name: Install/StressTesting
JDK/JRE tested: 6u22 b01
OS/architecture: Windows
Reproducible: Always
Reproducible on machine: 10.5.34.52
Regression: Yes

Steps to reproduce:
1) Intall 6u22 b01
2) run sigcheck on JRE binaries (exe's in bin directory)

Here is the output of sigcheck with 6u22 b01.

C:\sigcheck.exe "C:\Program Files\Java\jre6\bin\java.exe"

EVALUATION

First of all fix for # 6969236 does not change the publisher name. It revert back the 'Company Name' in the property value of .exe files to 'Sun Microsystems, Inc.' from 'Oracle' which was done as part of rebranding change.

Second, 6u21-b07 was built after 6u22 b01 is built and promoted. So 6u22-b01 did not have this change. 6u22-b02 will have this change. Fix has been included into repo already.
