Java SE 6 on Mac OS X!

Posted by onno on April 30, 2008 at 9:57 AM PDT

Apple yesterday pushed out Java SE 6 for Mac OS X. Software Update installs it as an additional Java run-time on your machine. Through the Java Preferences app (found in the Java folder in Utilities) you can set the default VM to use. After installing I set that to SE 6 and I am happy to report so far all is well!

Bahamontes, my own hobby project, works just fine including the Java 3D stuff. Which reminds me that I need to push out to sourceforge the changes I have made in the last couple of months. I have been looking at the SwingX components - so far took in the Calendar and DatePicker components, a huge improvement to the UI of Bahamontes as my ride collection is growing - but there's a lot more interesting stuff there.

And not only Java SE 6 on Mac OS X is new but also the Netbeans community just pushed out Netbeans 6.1 as well! More new installations to do!
