The Apple support article HT5559 is easy to follow and clear, tried, but it just does not work.

Javaws still starts the JDK 7

(which can be checked using jvisualvm)

 

 

For our customers it is a big problem due to a bug in Java7 on OSX.

Right now i tried to start different javaws files (e.g. /System/Library/Java/Support/Deploy.bundle/Contents/MacOS/javaws OR /System/Library/Java/JavaVirtualMachines/1.6.0.jdk/Contents/Home/bin/javaws  )

 

with no success..

e.g. As brute force test renaming the folder  /Library/Java/JavaVirtualMachines/jdk1.7.0_09.jdk/ should cause no harm (it is Oracle's JDK7, right..) but it stops javaws functioning. Therefore some reference still points to it (after HT5559). Why, which?

 

So  we would be  happy to figure out  how to re-activate JDK6 on OSX.

 

Thanks in advance for any idea!!

Best regards
