HT5559 I followed all the steps and now the browser is running java 6. However, in my terminal when I type "java -version" it still shows java 1.7. Any idea how to convert the terminal version of the java back to java 6?

I have installed the JDK 7 on my Macbook running Mountain Lion. However, Some of my previous codes break under java 7 and I need to go back to java 6. I follow all the steps mentioned in the post and now when I check my browser java version it shows java 6. However, still my terminal shows the version of java as 7. In fact, when I type "Java -version" in my terminal, it shows Java 1.7 and my code still doesn't work. Any idea on how to also change the terminal used java to 6?

 

 

thanks

MacBook Pro with Retina display, OS X Mountain Lion (10.8.1)
