See the bottom row, as it was apparently installed with new Oracle patch/version for zero day issue. Check out it's version. Now go to your Utilities folder and open Java Preferences and check it's versions. Which one do you think you have installed and actually working? Go to Terminal and enter "java -version" w/o quotations  and what do you get? Of course, I'm assuming you applied the Java 7 07 this week, if not you would not see it.


Other questions at the bottom.

Here is my Terminal output even though Java 7 is installed as you see above:

Any thoughts, ideas on which to believe? Which is actually running? Does one need to be disabled/removed ( the Java Preferences in the Utility folder should no longer be active/available since Apple no longer updates it if I'm not mistaken ) whereas the new Java preference Pane is new and from Oracle. Why does Java 6 still appears as active and operable to the system/Terminal?
