Apple Snow Leopard Issues

Re: Apple Snow Leopard Issues

Here is a method to get JSAM to work on Snow Leopard. The caveat here is that Java software will probably not get updated and result in a security issue later on.

On a 10.5 *Leopard* system!!

tar -zcf java-leopard.tar.gz
/System/Library/Frameworks/JavaVM.framework/Versions/1.5.0

Copy this file to the 10.6 *Snow Leopard* system.

On a 10.6 *Snow Leopard* system as root or using sudo:

rm /System/Library/Frameworks/JavaVM.framework/Versions/1.5.0
rm /System/Library/Frameworks/JavaVM.framework/Versions/1.5

tar -zxf java-leopard.tar.gz -C /

ln -s /System/Library/Frameworks/JavaVM.framework/Versions/1.5.0
/System/Library/Frameworks/JavaVM.framework/Versions/1.5

As a normal user:

Launch the "/Applications/Utilities/Java Preferences" application and
move the Java 5 32-bit to the top of the stack for both applets and
applications.

In a Finder window, look in the "/Application" directory and select
Safari then hit the command+i to pull up the info window. Select the
"Open in 32-bit mode" option.

JSAM should now work properly when launched from the 32-bit Safari instance.
