What's the best way to check what version of Java I have on Tiger. Does it automatically update?

Yes, it automatically updates, but you won't get 1.6 on Tiger as I understand it.

Open Terminal->Enter the command "java -version"->Press enter, and the version will display. On my Tiger machine i get:
java version "1.5.0_13"
Java(TM) 2 Runtime Environment, Standard Edition (build 1.5.0_13-b05-241)
Java HotSpot(TM) Client VM (build 1.5.0_13-121, mixed mode, sharing)
