You may be out of luck, we're dependant on Apple for Java, & there are no more Java updates for 10.5.8


Locate the version of Java that’s installed on your Mac OS X system.

1. Open the Utilities folder and run the Terminal application.

2. Type java -version and press Enter.

(space between java & -v important)

The version of Java that you have installed will then be displayed on the screen.
