Java 6 added to MBiL Mac OS core

It has been discovered that several specialist applications, such as SPSS, Maple and the Adobe Creative Suite, require Java 6 in order to run. ITS have therefore packaged this and added it to the MBiL Mac OS core build.

If you have already imaged your Mac, you will need to image it again to get Java 6 installed. If you have already created a Smart Configuration for your lab, you don’t need to alter this as it will automatically use the updated core Configuration.

Java 7 remains in the core and is used by Safari for displaying Java web content.
