Hello,

 

I have a completely new Macbook Pro Retina which already came with Mountain Lion.

I have erased it once, then reinstalled Mountin Lion via Internet Recovery.

Java has never been installed.

 

As far as I know, Mountain Lion does not come with Java.

In fact, I could not find a Java Runtime on my Mac, but some other things:

 

  • Java-Preferences (Utilities) is there. When I start it, it says I should download the Java 6 Runtime, but at least it's there.
  • Under Safari -> Installed Plug-Ins   "Java-Applet-Plug-In" is still listed.
  • There are some folders and files from Java! For example: Macintosh HD -> Library -> Java or Macintosh HD -> System -> Library -> Java

 

The first two points should not exist! As the description of this Update

http://support.apple.com/kb/HT5493?viewlocale=en_US&locale=en_US

says, both Java-Preferences and Java-Applet-Plug-In should have been removed!

 

 

How is this possible?

 

 

Thanks
