Posts on the Apple support boards indicate that last week's QuickTime upgrade to 7.0.2 is corrupting the Java installation. When this happens, entering the command "java -version" results in a message "HotSpot not at correct virtual address. Sharing disabled..."

Yesterday, Apple released a download for users to revert back to QuickTime 7.0.1 after "upgrading" to 7.0.2. This apparently restores Java functionality.

There's also a new Java download (1.4.2_09) that seems to work fine in conjunction with QT 7.0.2.

That's reassuring. One thing I like about Apple is that when there's a bug, they're usually very fast about issuing a repair -- certainly compared to some other companies. (But as a side note, I wish they would make Java 1.5 standard.)

I installed the Java update (which didn't supposedly have anything to do with Java 5), and all my settings are set to use Java 5 (sym-linked as default and such), and I get the error.

Anything about how to fix that?

Yeah, I've read that the new 1.3-1.4 update also corrupts the 1.5 installation. I haven't "upgraded" myself, so I haven't had to deal with this first hand. Some users have reported that using Pacifist with the latest Java 5.0 update resolves the issue.



(Note: I've never used Pacifist, but according to the site linked to above, "Pacifist is also able to verify existing installations and find missing or altered files...")
