    Oracle has released an update for Java that allows you to use Java again on Mac OS X, including OS X Mountain Lion. You can download this update from Oracle's site > http://www.java.com/

     

    Also, I recommend you to use Java only when you need it. You can get malware using Java

    I appreciate the reply. But I'm still at square one. "Install if you feel lucky" or "install but don't use it". Will Apple provide any help in the 10.8.3 future update? - - - if anyone can say ?

    The problem is that Java is an unsafe application (you have seen it with the latest updates), and it has nothing to do with Apple.

     

    If you need Java, you have to use it, but you should use it at least you can. Unfortunately, Apple can't provide any help for this
