Upgrading Mac Java 1.6.0 cannot RUN_setup

Postby red1 » Tue May 10, 2011 1:02 am

I wasted, i mean learned alot for more than one whole full day on this, thinking that the new 1.6.0 has no JDK and so cannot RUN_setup. The JAVA_HOME cannot work in the new 64bit Mac OSX as the 1.6.0 has its own JDK. I have to change the JAVA_HOME in .profile to export JAVA_HOME=`/usr/libexec/java_home` or else it will hit error:
Error: could not find libjava.dylib
Error: could not find Java 2 Runtime Environment.

But JAVA_HOME above hits a tools.jar not found in 1.6.0.jdk/lib and thus cannot RUN_setup or RUN_DBExport to make the final jar.

Fooling it with a dummy tools.jar cannot work as the 1.6.0 is a shortcut to 1.6.0.jdk ! which is not a folder to put anything under it!

Carlos Ruiz gave me the breakthrough when he asked what i selected in the OS menu. Of course i did not change from Sun to Mac. Doing that, gives the right path to the 1.6.0/Content/Home which has its own classes.jar not needing the tools.jar!

I appreciate this hiccup as i practically went round the world of Mac to get to the final solution. Never forget that boys and girls.

postnote: To RUN_Build you need to comment out the JDK checking:
Code: Select all
# check jdk
#if  [ ! -f $JAVA_HOME/lib/tools.jar ] ; then
#   echo "** Need full Java SDK **"
#   exit
