I am a plugin developer for a Java game and I have recently updated to OS X Mavericks from Lion. I have been using the Console all the time to debug my plugins and read output / errors of Java.

However, after updating to OS X Mavericks and downloading all the required and recommended Java packages I used before, the same Java game gives no Java output to the console. The game hasn't changed at all, either OS X changed and blocks the console output or the Java package is interfering with Mavericks. That's all I can think of.

Earlier OS X users don't have this problem with the same version of Java.


I am using Java 6 :

java version "1.6.0_65"

Java(TM) SE Runtime Environment (build 1.6.0_65-b14-462-11M4609)

Java HotSpot(TM) 64-Bit Server VM (build 20.65-b04-462, mixed mode)


I have had this issue for over a week now and it completely stopped me from updating my plugins.


Please help

OS X Mavericks (10.9)
