The only version of Java available for your use is Java SE 7 available from Oracle at http://www.java.com/download/. You might want to hold off until tomorrow when they have scheduled another security update.


If you are looking for Java SE 6, Apple has chosen not to update it to a safe version for browser use and has disabled it via the XProtect system.

As I noted later, I was referring to browser use and you might be interested in some breaking news:

Under the following circumstances you can re-enable the Apple-provided Java SE 6 applet plug-in and Web Start functionality:


You have a previously installed version of Java SE 6 installed or migrated from a previous system and...


You chose to install Java SE 7 from Oracle.


Those procedures will not restore Java SE 6 unless you already had it. It's possible that simply installing Java for OS X 2012-006 will also work, I just have not read enough success stories to know that.


And having done all that, the user will find that Apple has disabled the Java 6 plug-in and Java Web Component using XProtect.

Not the latest version. See the XProtect.metadata.plist file. Does't affect 1.6.0.39.

Correct, but there is no 1.6.0_39 for Lion / Mountain Lion. The last update for them was Java for OS X 2012-006 which was 1.6.0_37.

Am I missing something? You already reported that Java for OS X 2012-006 delivers improved security, reliability, and compatibility by updating Java SE 6 to 1.6.0_37. Don't know if there's a way to get to 39 except to update SL's version and then reinstall Lion/ML on top of it, which is what I'd do if needing to run Java SE 6.

I am not worried about security issue.

I just want to run Java Applet in any of my browsers.

Our Application is should work in browser as an applet that is the first thing.

Security is second issue.

So please tell me which is the mininum Java Version I can install in Mac OS to avoid this security checking.

If choose Snow Leopard also same issue it will have?

I want to run Java Applet some how in any of Mac OS with any Java version above 1.6.0

The Security issue is over (for now, but I'm confident it will be back). You can safely update to either Java SE 7u15 at Oracle or Java for Mac OS X 10.6 Update 13 from Apple using Software Update or both. You can switch the browser plugin back and forth between the two by following these instructions that baltwo mentioned before.


All the experts are telling us that Java for the browser is dead, so if you are involved in the development of such Applets, you need to find a different solution or a new job.

I did all those steps.

So now what do you get when you give the Terminal command "java -version"?

Still it is showing "missed plugin" message.

What does this site say? http://www.java.com/en/download/testjava.jsp

How can I enable my old "Java Preferences" so that I can check the "Enable Java".

You would need to find it on a backup and Apple says you don't need it so I doubt it would have any effect even if you could get it back.
