Just in case someone out there will be doing a MANUAL update of Apple Java for MacOS X 10.5...this unfortunately is a SEMI-incremental update process, so prior to updating to the most recent Apple Java for Mac OS X 10.5 Update 10, as properly indicated above, one would first need to DL and install the following: Java for Mac OS X 10.5 Update 5 [Released on 09.03.2009] http://web.archive.org/web/20100718113953/http://support.apple.com/kb/DL924? http://support.apple.com/downloads/DL924/en_US/JavaForMacOSX10.5Update5.dmg [NOTE: "WayBackMachine" listing mirror of the info page for Update 5 is provided above as the "official" link is DOWN, but the standalone Apple update DL link below it DOES work.] Hope that helps! ;) -Alan

Well, so far I've been able to develop on my Dual 2 G5 with Springsource Tools Suite version 2.6.2 , being the latest without major problems, except some odd behavior in nightly versions of STS. This includes the different Spring frameworks including Spring Roo 1.1.4, Tomcat 6. A bit bewildering is that after I installed this update and run java -version in the terminal I still get build 1.5.0_28-b04-382-9M3326, which is the same I unsurprisingly got with the 10.5_java_base_9m3233 of september 2010. Does this mean Apple just repackaged the betas as a release, I wonder...
alas!

Attempted to install this on my MacBook Pro Intel core 2 duo w/OS 10.5.8 but it doesn't then show up on my list of Software Updates, so I'm assuming that update 9 did not, in fact, install successfully. Very puzzling.

I'm not sure if this is the right place to turn for this, but I'm starting to give up...! Earlier today, I updated iTunes to 10.0.1 and Java 10.5 update 8 on my MacBook. Neither required a restart, but since my iTunes had been behaving slightly strange I restarted anyway. Since then it hasn't started yet. It loads the background picture and the program icons on the bottom of the screen, and when I left it for about an hour, I got the top as well, but only with the 'Finder" written and a couple of the icons on the top right, however not the clock. The mouse is there and can be moved around, but it is just the spinningy colourful icon, and obviously I can't open any programs. As you could guess, I haven't done a backup for about six months and feel even more stupid over this... Is there anything I can do to help my computer back to life? Thanks so much for anyone trying to help me!

I have had the same problem. When I reinstalled the OS it worked normally. At that time I did not know the JAVA update was the culprit -- but when I just updated it again the problem re-occurred. The system now will not start up normally (I have to hold the power button down, wait for the long beep tone, etc.) I am hoping they can patch it, because I don't want to reinstall the apps I had to reinstall after the OS reinstall... HOWEVER -- doing a "repair" type install on the OS did work. ***************************************************** This is from the apple developer site: http://www.apple.com/java/faq/#remove url Q: Can I remove a Java update after I've installed it? A: Java on Mac OS X is updated incrementally through numerous releases. Therefore, the only way to revert to an earlier Java installation is to reinstall the operating system. The same applies for any other Java-related Software Updates or Developer Previews. For this reason, it is strongly recommended that Developer Previews of Java on Mac OS X be installed on non-critical systems.

In Disk Utility, when I repair permissions I get "Permissions differ on "usr/share/derby", should be drwxr-xr-x , they are lrwxr-xr-x . Repaired "usr/share/derby"." Of course I also get the message about ARDagent and how it can't be repaired, but that is old stuff. Strangely, every time I repair the permissions, I get the "usr/share/derby" message, even though it says it's repaired. But I'm used to a few permissions being off. At least Snow Leopard fixed most of that problem. Otherwise, I have had no noticeable change in speed or function. It has worked for me (so far).

I think time has come for Oracle/Sun to either take over PPC Java security fixes or send Apple a court order to EXCLUDE Java from PPC machines via software update just like they did to Microsoft in JVM 1.1 ages. 10.4.11 users should disable "java applets" (disable Java in Safari and others) unless Apple ships an update.

So far, it seems like sites using Java applets (part of what changed) seem choppy and slow. YouTube was a mess earlier, though I was under the impression that was mostly Adobe Flash. I'm using Firefox 3.5.2 but I've seen others complain about Safari so apparently, this update was not tested well.

People using Java based software may want to contact the software developer(s) to confirm that the software will work with this update. From what I've seen, (for me) so far only Araxis Ketura has been affected: "We have reason to believe that this update might be incompatible with Ketura and thus render Ketura inoperable...We strongly suggest that, until we can test Ketura with this update, you do not install it on a Mac OS X 10.5 Leopard machine hosting your Ketura server..." Araxis provide wonderful support so I'm sure they'll get this fixed soon.

I just updated my Intel Dual-Core Mac Mini running OS X 10.5.7 with the Java 10.5 update 3 that I downloaded from the Apple Developer web site. Have the following issues which I thought important to share and which I am still looking for resolution of. 1.) Java not longer runs in either Safari or Fire Fox. 2.) The Default Java version after install is Java 5. (1.5) Not really a problem but when attempting to change via the Java Preferences app, Java remains at this same version. Still looking for help in correcting this installation or backing it out. This is the first time I have ever had problems with a Java installation on the Mac.

As a PPC owner, the version of Java that is currently available is just an insult by Apple. Some programs will simply not run on PPC machines, since they require Java 1.6. The current version for PPC machines is 1.5.0_16. I can either buy an Intel-based Mac, or a PC. Considering the cost of Apple hardware, a PC seems like the best alternative for my particular situation. I currently have 2 Macs. I won't buy a 3rd Apple computer and reward Apple's arrogance and/or incompetence. (I get the feeling that this comment won't be popular among fanboys)

So far two programs refuse to work on my system; Consideo Modeler and Quantrix Modeler. Both seem to require Java 1.6, however the latest Java version for PPC computers is 1.5 and 1.6 is for Intel machines only. The developers seem to be very responsive, but I don't know whether there's much they can do.

I don't know how Apple does it but they succeeded in what others couldn't do; constrain a seemingly open platform to a single CPU architecture. Maybe it was just strategic movement, maybe they were trying to cut expenses, maybe they had to completely kill PPC because their CPU supplier (Intel) commanded so, maybe it was just programming incompetence. They just look silly to me; JDK1.6 was available in beta for PPC ages ago (both 32bit and 64bit) and x86 Java is universally available in every platform out there (well, almost). I guess if they didn't have to control everything and let Sun do an OSX version things would have been better for all.

Nice--only took about 2.5 months to release this after Sun made it available for other platforms. The way Apple is working this whole Java thing is really embarrassing. Java was supposed to be a cornerstone of OS X, it's really a second-class citizen. For those wondering, from what I understand, the reason for the delays between Sun's releases and Apple's OS X release is because Apple's own engineers need to substantially rework and improve the code to make it run at all decently under OS X (and even then the performance isn't up to par with other platforms).

seems every time Apple makes a update they mess something up they should test there programing before releaseing it now they want us to buy Tiger for about $140 ha that's a joke if your going to buy Tiger wait untill they release 10.4.2 or 10.4.3 you know there are going to be security holes in 10.4 and apps will probly have problems for the first few months. but what it comes down to is Appe is just like Microsofe they make claims that htere OS is so great then if there so great why can't they make a simple update that works it's becouse like i said Apple iis just like microsoft they care more about stealing your money for software that always has one problem or another. myself i say Boycott Tiger untill they releast at leas 10.4.2 or 10.4.3 then the OS may be worth running untill then the dummies at apple should spend a little more time looking over there mistakes and trying to make the OS work properly. im sick of then ripping me off for juks that don't work or has a error with many apps. hell if it don't work properly im not paying $140 for it the only reason they can do this is becouse we allow them to so let them keep Tiger untill i see some proof that the OS works with no major errors witch you know there will be a few security updates right away. when you rush development becouse of your Greed it don't make your OS better it just makes people see how quick you are to grab there money and if you need to make updates to a OS use your brain if your going to fix something fix it don't tell me your fixing the OS then cauuse more problems with it thats just plain stupid

All you people need to calmn the heck down. Its a 200K Java update for Christ's sake. So the guy who was pissed about downloading the 16MB is still on a 2400 baud modem. He has a right to be upset, but not at Apple. You, on the other hand, are one of those Apple fanatics who is convinced that the company can do no wrong. And that's probably cause you smoke reefer. But that is ok too. The point I'm trying to drive here is this: it's Thursday evening and your hanging out on macupdate? arguing in the comments section of a 200K Java Update? Common guys -- even that 13 year old who chimed ironically was the only one to admit he had no idea WTF he was talking about -- it's Miller Time!

Apple really screwed with this update. It contains all lot of bugs that render it incompatilbe to the official Java version from sun. This means many Java Application will no longer run once this update has been applied. Especially the java classes for the handling of resource bundle (used for internationalization) is damaged severly: - resource class files can't be loaded any more - it does not load default resources for unknown locales as specified in the official java versions from sun

Combined with OS 10.3.5, this solves the problem with some Java apps (e.g. Encyclopedia Britannica) that wouldn't launch (Java application stub error) if you had any fonts turned off in Font Book. About time!

As always a painless update from Apple. But, and it's still a big but, I still cannot access my bank, without using IE. Safari still is blank....... It's a shame but the "Nordea" bank here in Denmark say that their site is now (finally) Mac compatible, yeah sure, if you use IE!!

Another painless update. But since installiing 10.3.5 and now this Java update, my iBook eats about 10MB more RAM when idle (immediately after a restart). yes, i've run all the usual util's before and after the installation(s)... Apple Disk Utility to repair permissions, OnyX to clear caches, DiskWarrior, RebuildDesktopX... still the iBook is eating more RAM

Hmm... I tried installing this with Software Update... and it said I needed to install 1.4.1 first... (I'm running 10.3.6) and then I tried d/ling 1.4.1 off of apple's site, but the image wouldn't mount! Codec overflow or something, tried download the file again, made no difference! Can Someone help?

Chick, Java has nothing to do with running scripts, not even Javascripts. You may want to look into your browser preferences and activate running scripts (because they may have been deactivated by you as you were looking for... I dont know) and you may also want to disable popup blocking, because that may be what's is preventing you from seeing the results of some of your links. Just for the record, Panther is a very good OS and Safari is a very good browser (i'm not going overboard here). They both just require some understanding of how they work from the part of the user (like everything else).

I've read through the reviews and comments and all the writers seem to at least know what they're talking about, even when they can't solve the problem. Laugh if you want, but I know nothing about how this computer operates, and the only thing I know about Java is that it's something required for the internet. The problem is, since I upgraded to the worthless, useless, joke they call Panther, none of my browsers, including Explorer and the half-baked Safari (another joke) will run "scripts" or "javascripts." The only reason I even know that is because that's what's in the status bar whenever I try to click on a link and find it won't pull up. It's like it's a dead link, except I see the what it ought to do in the status bar. I never know when I go to a website if I will be able to even get past the home page anymore. I was just trying to get a weather forecast today and couldn't, and I'm sick of it. I am so frustrated I can't believe I'm actually to the point I'm typing a message of HELP ME in "cyberspace" like this. I downloaded both Java Updater 1.4.1 and that didn't help, so then I tried again with 1.4.2. Still didn't help. I went to some Apple website and found out how to check and see if I even had the problem the updaters were supposed to correct (using something called Terminal, which sounded dangerously over my head, but I did it anyway), and then I found out Java is not even the problem. I guess I'm just doomed to be shut off from half the links on the internet now. I've been a loyal Apple customer for years but the next time I upgrade I'm leaving because this is just STUPID; the whole reason I use a Mac is because I don't want to have to know how to program computers, and Macs are supposed to be EASY. I thought the software update was supposed to take care of all this updating without me having to worry over it. Also, just for the record, I HATE PANTHER. If you haven't upgarded, DON'T!

I had the same problem upgrading from 1.4.1 to 1.4.2. MacFixit had the answer on their site. If you upgraded to 1.4.1 under Jaguar, then you have the wrong version of Java. Apparently there is a Jaguar version of Java 1.4.1, which is different than the Panther version of Java 1.4.1. Confusing! Apple has an updater for Java that will get you from Java 1.4.1 for Jaguar to Java 1.4.1 for Panther at . Once you have installed the Panther version of 1.4.1 you can run the 1.4.2 updater.

Has anyone else had the following problem with this update: I had my Jaguar Mac up to date with upgrades, running 10.2.8 with Java 1.4.1. I recently decided to upgrade to Panther, but when I tried to upgrade Java to 1.4.2 it stopped me saying that I needed to upgrade Java to 1.4.1. To be sure, I then installed the Panther Java 1.4.1 download from the Apple website, but still no joy. Not a desparate problem, but I like to keep my mac up to date - Thanks

No problems... another smooth update as usual (for me, anyway... and that includes 10.2.8... Apple updates/upgrades have not bit me since Mac OS 9.0 came out) and OS 10.3.2 is just a pleasure to use, so much better than Jaguar.

I, too, am receiving an invalid checksum error. Not sure what the deal is. I did manage to find out that you don't need this if you installed 10.3 cleanly, but I didn't, which is why it doesn't show up in every Software Update. And the software update download corrupts as well. Not sure what to do about that.

Maybe it's just me, but I don't see much improvement after installing this release. Speed is slightly improved, but compatibility with windows based java code, which should be entirely the same, does not cross over. Yohoho! Puzzle Pirates, created by Three Rings Design, still does not work properly. I hope Apple has big plans for their work-in-progress 1.4.2 implementation, because this is pathetic.

I wish I could say that I noticed some sort of improvement in performance or stability, but I can't quite tell exactly what this update did. It took longer to optimise my system than to install. And my German Javascript prompts (umlauts, for example) are still buggy.
