Does this update mean that JDK 1.6 is now available for OS X Leopard?

Then how come when I did ran the Software Update on my OS X Leopard based iMac, that it detected this update and is installing it (as I write this post)?

Are the 64 bit machines the MacPro towers?

I think the answer to your question is the Intel Core 2 Duo...

Is this what you were asking me?

Ulf,
So, you are telling me that I can run JDK 1.6 on my iMac?

Cheers, dude!

Who am I to tell you what you can or can not do :-)

Disappointingly, but as I had suspected would be the case, not only is a 64-bit Intel CPU required, but also OS X 10.5.

Ulf,

I bought one the original redesigned Aluminum based iMacs (which is pre-installed with OS X Leopard - version number 10.5).

So, I guess I am in good shape!

My company's standard is still JDK 1.5 so I guess I won't be switching my CurrentJDK (which is synonymous with Windows or Linux's JAVA_HOME) system environmental variable anytime soon!

Cheers, dude!

Note: it only installs it, it doesn't change any JVM settings. You'll need to do that separately.

If I'm understanding your post correctly, you're looking for the Terminal application on OS X.
Applications => Utilities => Terminal

This will drop you into your home directory with a Bash shell.
 
Squanch that. And squanch this tiny ad:
