    For what it's worth, I was having this same issue on a different app (JIRA, and the fix you described (copying the JavaApplicationStub in place of the file in Contents/MacOS/ within the .app) worked like a charm. Thanks!

    alright, i think i found a fix here: ken/

    "Someone in the Apple forums pointed out that simply copying the destination of the symlink, which points to

    /System/Library/Frameworks/JavaVM.framework/Versions/A/Resources/MacOS/JavaAppli cationStub

    back into (replacing the symlink with a copy) also makes the jEdit application bundle work again. This method has considerably fewer steps than mine.

    Apparently this file is functionally the same as the one generated by Jar builder. It seems Java developers went for the symlink method specifically to avoid problems created whenever Apple would go and update Java. With this update the symlink doesn’t seem to work again."

    hope this helps!
