  3. If you prefer to continue using Apple's Java 6 plug-in, follow the steps provided in the Java for OS X 2014-001 topic at the Apple Developer site. After installing Java for macOS 2012-006, can I continue to use Apple's Java 6 alongside the macOS JDK or JRE for Java 10?

It is a little bit tricky, but try to follow the steps described in Installing Java on OS X 10.9 (Mavericks). Basically, you gonna have to update your alias to java. Step by step: After installing JDK 1.7, you will need to do the sudo ln -snf in order to change the link to current java. 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.

See JDK 7 and JRE 7 Installation Guide for general information about installing JDK 7 and JRE 7.

See the Mac OS X Platform Install FAQ for general information about installing JDK 7 on Mac OS X.


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:

Java Jdk 1.7 Download For Mac Os X

  • jdk-7u<version>-macosx-amd64.dmg
  • jdk-7u<version>-macosx-x64.dmg
Java Jdk Mac Os X

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.

To get JDK 7 up,

  • I downloaded the JDK from Oracle. They have a nice dmg file, which makes it easy to install.
  • After reading their installation instructions and running /usr/libexec/java_home (which I didn't even know about), it still wasn't defaulting to JDK 7.

Surgery required. So, I headed over to:

Jdk 1.7 Mac Os X 10.10

This is where the system jvm's are stored. You'll notice a symbolic link for CurrentJDK. It probably points to:

You're going to want to point that to the new JDK, which java_home tells us is located in:

Jdk 1.7 Mac Os Xcode


So, the magic commands you need are:


Then, you should be good:

Java Development Kit (jdk) On Mac Os X 10.10

I am trying to create my first macro with LibreOffice version on a MacBook Pro running Mac OS X 10.14.5. When I select menu item “Tools Macros Run Macro” I get this popup box: “LibreOffice requires Oracle’s Java Development Kit (JDK) on Mac OS X 10.10 or greater to perform this task. Please install them and restart LibreOffice.” However, the title of the popup box is “JRE Required”.

I found a potential answer to this problem in the question “Mac Java problem when creating a database” but the detailed directions talk about installing the JDK. The error messages I got in the popup implied that I need both the JDK and the JRE.

When I install the JDK will I also get a copy of the JRE? What are the current instructions for installing the needed Oracle libraries if I want to use macros?
