On Apple.com -> Support -> Downloads, searching for Java for OS X 2012-006, opening the article to download leads to Java for OS X 2012-005.
So I can't download the Java, and it's telling me I have missing content.
The upgrade to Java for OS X 2012-006 is available on Mountain Lion via Software Update.

See that is what I did, but like countless others on this board, it didn't work.
From previous experience it works to install the update manually, can't do that this time.

I've done the Mountain Lion update via Appstore --- which tells you if you want the web Java plugin, go download from Oracle. The Oracle download gives you Java7x --- which seems to make all my Java stuff happy.
Which has me wondering --- why did Apple even put this thing out there?

I can't install Java 7, something doesn't work with my eBanking. Can't authorize payments. Plus the java control panel is just blank with 1.7.0_6 to 1.7.0_9.

Have you read this thread...

You do have Java 7 installed --- 1.7.0_6 is the older one 1.7.0_9 is the newer one. You get to choose which version is "first try". Now take a look at your Safari preferences (if that is the browser you are using), security tab and see that all your java choices are enabled. You may need to quit and restart your browser for the changes to take effect.

No I did have Java 7 installed.
Then I uninstalled it, using the guide from here: http://www.java.com/en/download/help/mac_uninstall_java.xml
It worked fine with 1.6.0_35 untill Apple released 1.6.0_37, then it just stopped working. In Safari, FF and Chrome.
Tried installing Java 7 again now that 1.7.0_9 had come out to see if that solved my problems, but no that was equally screwed. So uninstalled it again.
Where Java should run it just says "missing addon" or rather since it's danish "manglende tilbehør".
I daily support people with their computer, and I'm close to saying I have to reinstall my mac to get java working again, and that's just dumb.
If they would just link to a proper download article so you could download java 1.6.0_37 for mac os 10.8 then the world would be a but more peachy.

Here it is http://support.apple.com/kb/DL1572?? the proper link that *should* have been there in the first place.

You *did* ask for a download link for java 1.6.0_37 ----- which did not exist when the update first hit (you got to this outdated page for 1.6.0_35, instead).
We seem to be confusing each other. If you can't get a good Java install that works with your eBank, then why not just restore your system from your backup? Then contact your eBank support regarding the Java issue.
If you do a system format/ install, you will not get any Java 'til you use something that needs it --- then you will get the same *current* one that is giving you fits.

I believe the issue is gatekeeper. I had no problem installing Java 6 once I changed my gatekeeper settings (Preferences -> Security & Privacy -> "allow applications downloaded from"). Change the option to 'Anywhere' and try it again. Then make sure to change it back to "Mac App Store and identified developers to be safe.
