System Requirements

  • Any Intel-based Mac running Mac OS X 10.7.3 (Lion) or later.
  • Administrator privileges.

Note that installing the JDK on a Mac is performed on a system wide basis, for all users, and administrator privileges are required. You cannot install Java for a single user.

Installing the JDK also installs the JRE. The one exception is that the system will not replace the current JRE with a lower version. To install a lower version of the JRE, first uninstall the current version.

JDK 7 Installation Instructions

Installation of the 64-bit JDK on Mac Platforms

When you download the Java Development Kit (JDK), the associated Java Runtime Environment (JRE) is installed at the same time. The JavaFX SDK and Runtime are also installed and integrated into the standard JDK directory structure.

Depending on your processor, the downloaded file has one of the following names:

  • jdk-7u<version>-macosx-amd64.dmg
  • jdk-7u<version>-macosx-x64.dmg

Where <version> is 6 or later.

1. Download the file. Before the file can be downloaded, you must accept the license agreement.

2. From either the Downloads window of the browser, or from the file browser, double click the .dmg file to launch it.

3. A Finder window appears containing an icon of an open box and the name of the .pkg file Double click the package icon to launch the Install app.

4. The Install app displays the Introduction window. Click Continue.

4a. Note that, in some cases, a Destination Select window appears. This is a bug, as there is only one option available. If you see this window, select Install for all users of this computer to enable the continue button. Click Continue.

5. The Installation Type window appears. Click Install.

6. A window appears which says 'Installer is trying to install new software. Type your password to allow this.' Enter the Administrator login and password and click Install Software.

7. The software is installed and a confirmation window appears. Click the ReadMe for more information about the installation.

After the software is installed, delete the dmg file if you want to save disk space.

Determining the Default Version of the JDK

A: If you have not yet installed Apple's Java Mac OS X 2012-006 update, then you are still using a version of Apple Java 6 that includes the plug-in and the Java Preferences app. See Note for Users of Macs that Include Apple Java 6 Plug-in.

There can be multiple JDKs installed on a system – as many as you wish.


When launching a Java application through the command line, the system uses the default JDK. It is possible for the version of the JRE to be different than the version of the JDK.

You can determine which version of the JDK is the default by typing java -version in a Terminal window. If the installed version is 7u6, you will see a string that includes the text 1.7.0_06. For example:

To run a different version of Java, either specify the full path, or use the java_home tool:

For more information, see the java_home(1) man page.

Uninstalling the JDK

To uninstall the JDK, you must have Administrator privileges and execute the remove command either as root or by using the sudo(8) tool.

Navigate to /Library/Java/JavaVirtualMachines and remove the directory whose name matches the following format:*

For example, to uninstall 7u6:

Do not attempt to uninstall Java by removing the Java tools from /usr/bin. This directory is part of the system software and any changes will be reset by Apple the next time you perform an update of the OS.

*The 7u4 and 7u5 releases were installed into a directory that does not follow this format. To uninstall 7u4 or 7u5, remove the 1.7.0.jdk directory from the same location.

Multiple versions of Java on OS X Mountain Lion

Download Java 6 Runtime Mac

@This article is deprecated and might be used only for MounatinLion 10.8.1

Before Mountain Lion, Java was bundled inside OS X. It seems that during the upgrade, the Java 6 version I had on my machine was removed.
Apparently the reason for uninstalling Java during the upgrade process was caused by a security issue that the Java runtime had.In this way you are forced to install the latest version which fixed this security problem.

So I went to /Applications/Utilities/ open a Terminal and executed the following command:
java -version > “No Java runtime present …”
A window prompted asking to install Java.Click “Install” and get the latest version.I installed it but right after I downloaded and installed the JDK SE 7 from Oracle.

After installation, open the Java Preferences (Launchapad/Others ) and you will see :

Now I knew I had two versions of Java but which one I am using it ?

So what if i want to use JDK SE 7 from Oracle ?
Then I had just to drag Java SE 7 in the Java Preferences window to the first position in the list.

This time :

I said to myself let’s find out more out how Java is installed on OS X so I dug for more.

There are some very useful commands : whereis and which and ls -l.

When I saw this I was a little bit curious so I went to list the Versions directory:

Now why do I have this old versions of Java on my machine ? So I asked on Ask Different

It seems all the old versions are links to the CurrentJDK version , which is the Apple version, except A and Current which is linked to A.I read something about this on this question.For me A acts like a temp variable. If in Java Preferences you set the in the first position Java 6 from Apple A will have Java 6 from Apple if you put on the first position Java SE 7 from Oracle A will point to this version.Current points to A.

So it means that in this Current directory will point to the first Java Version found in the Java Preferences.
A very interesting thing is the following information

This means Java from Apple is actually installed here :”/System/Library/Java/JavaVirtualMachines/1.6.0.jdk/”
What about Java SE 7 ? I could search the filesystem to see but I found an easier way:

If in Java Preferences on the first position is Java SE 7 >

If in Java Preferences on the first position is Java SE 6 (System) >

So Java on Mountain Lion (OSX) is more likely to be installed in one of this locations :

  • /System/Library/Java/JavaVirtualMachines
  • /Library/Java/JavaVirtualMachines
  • ~/Library/Java/JavaVirtualMachines

What about /System/Library/Frameworks/JavaVM.framework/Versions ?
It seems that is linked to the so called “Java bridge“.Here it seems is the native part of the Java on OSX installation.
