I just downloaded/installed the latest Java update.
jEdit, JDiskReport, jDiskUsage - the list goes on - all my Java apps fail.
Here's what I get in my system.log when I try to launch, say ... jEdit ...

    Same problem here! jEdit doesn't work after the update. How do I undo the update?? Same errors in the console that you're seeing.

    Ugh, same problem here! jEdit is the #1 program I'm in, all day long. Somebody please help!
  • ChrisHillTucson Level 1 Level 1
    I was able to install the jEdit jar and use that. It looks like the update broke the launcher for some java apps. I can run jEdit via the command line - unix style. this will get me through tomorrow....

    Sadly, that didn't work for me... And Java Preferences doesn't run either (bounces and quits like jEdit). Running "java -version" at the command line reveals my default Java runtime is still 1.5.0, though -- anybody have any idea what this POS update did -- besides kill jEdit?

    I had same problem with the Developer pre-release. It is not easy to uninstall (no uninstaller) as there are files put in System/Library and /Library folders that are not easy to identify. Hope you backed up before you installed the Java update - if so roll back to the earlier time with your system folder.

    I had no problem with the public release. Only issue I have is that there is no facility to allocate Java memory in this new release.

    I managed to run Jedit, however there is a problem with the MacOs.jar.
    Just click : /Applications/jEdit.app/Contents/Resources/Java/jedit.jar
    (Application folder, jedit (right click, 'show package content')
    Seems to be fully functional

    I, too, can launch jEdit by navigating to /Applications/jEdit.app/Contents/Resources/Java and double-clicking on the JAR. There are three problems with this:
    1-jEdit does not start cleanly
    2-you cannot drag/drop to open
    3-what, is this 2002?

    And it seems this isn't the 1st time it's happened ...

    I've found a temporary solution to get jEdit (and perhaps other broken Java apps) working with the Mac Menubars and other features of a native Mac Application and posted it here:
    http://renderfast.com/2008/09/26/java-for-mac-update-2-leaves-some-java-apps-bro ken/
    It involves remaking the Java Application bundle using the Jar Builder provided with Apple's Developer Tools. It's a tedious solution but necessary as I depend on jEdit.
  • sbd76 Level 1 Level 1
    I think the problem is in the symbolic link from /Applications/JEdit.app/Contents/MacOS/jedit to /System/Library/Frameworks/JavaVM.framework/Versions/A/Resources/MacOS/JavaAppl icationStub

    Invoking from the jedit icon the symb link call JavaApplicationStub but this lose the information of the original folder and don't find the resource and classpath. But if you copy the system JavaApplicationStub to /Applications/JEdit.app/Contents/MacOS/ and rename it to jedit (rename before the original file) jedit app start correctly.

    Very clever! That works for me. Thanks a lot!
  • VeryVito Level 1 Level 1
    Thank you guys. I've actually been thinking I might have to desert jEdit for Textmate or Eclipse this week... and I was hating the idea.

    All better now! Thanks

    I get the same problem with Java Preferences. I downloaded the public release of 1.6 and now this. Any Ideas how i can either remove 1.6 or how I can get Java preferences working again?

    Thanks
