Half a year after Leopard has been released, we finally get an official Java SE 6 from Apple today!
Thanks Apple! Anyway…
As you can see from the description:
This update does not replace the existing installation of J2SE 5.0 or change the default version of Java.
So if you want to make Java SE 6 your default version of Java, there is one thing you need to do:
sudo ln….. OK, no command line this time.
Here is the right way to do:
- Launch /Applications/Utilities/Java/Java\ Preferences.app
- Drag “Java SE 6 (64-bit)” to the top of the “Java Application runtime Setting”
You could change Java Applet Runtime Version to J2SE 6 too, but please make sure you know you really need it.
