Hell of an adventure I had today with my newest venture. The short story:
My user client is built on Java (1.6) and is compatible with, basically, everything. So, when after I downloaded the client and tried to launch it within Apple’s latest OS creation I was bummed to see it fail. After a bit of banging away I realized that there was an update released in September of 2008. So, I go online and begin the 136 meg download from Starbucks.
I discovered during the download this site.
The simple solution is the following:
- If you want to have JDK 1.6 on your Mac then go to this directory:
- /Applications/Utilities/Java/Java Preferences.app/Contents/MacOS
- and run “./Java\ Preferences” (without quotes)
- drag’n’drop JAVA SE 6 to the top of the “Application list”
- Done – that is it.
At the console type “java -version” to confirm.
