Java on Mac





I had to unlink the /System/Libraries/Frameworks/JavaVM.Framework/Versions/Current* from 1.6.0 and relink to A after installing a Java update.

Eclipse didn’t work because apparently the new JDK or something doesn’t do 32-bit mode… I don’t know what the problem was exactly, but it manifested itself as not running/compiling Java apps from the command-line, and Eclipse not starting with a verbose message indicating its command-line invocation, and an exit code = -1.

Problem solved.

  1. Hi. I recently ran into a similar problem. I have a Mac OS X 10.5.8 machine and updated the Java link to point to 1.6 (per the instructions for making BlackBerry PlayBook apps with Adobe AIR). The Java upgrade to a 64bit version broke Flash Builder (Eclipse) because it requires Java 32bit. I tried to revert by just linking Java to the prior version but that didn’t work, but I had success downloading a manual installer for Java/Mac and reinstalling it. Here’s the details anyone wants to do the same:
