Newest post on how to install Oracle JDK 8 / Java SE 8 on Mac OS X 10.10 Yosemite can be found here.

At the time of this writing, there is no official release of Java SE 7 / Oracle JDK 1.7 on Mac OS X. It is still in developer preview based on Apple’s contributions to OpenJDK. The Developer Preview is provided to the community so that the developers can get feedback on the ongoing progress of the project. The developer preview should work on any Intel-based Mac and has been tested on Mac OS X 10.6.8 (Snow Leopard) and 10.7 (Lion).

Java 7 oracle for mac versions

Oracle has launched the official Java SE 7 for Mac OS X 64-bit platform. You can download it from here.

I got a warning that SQL Developer was trying to run with Java 7 JDK – the ‘smart’ app code wasn’t finding the Java 8 I had just installed. I could have rebooted my Mac in case the Java path just needed refreshed, but I’m lazy, so I manually told SQL Dev where it could find the JDK. Under Oracle Java, only a single version of the JRE can be installed at a time. For more information, see JRE 7 Installation for Mac OS X. To access the Java Control Panel, click the Java icon in the System Preferences panel. If the Java icon is not present (under the Other category) in System Preferences, you do not have an Oracle JRE installed. The Vendor column indicates whether the Java release is supplied by Apple or Oracle. The Version column specifies the version of Java that is installed. Reordering the list, by dragging Java SE 10 to the top, makes it the default version of Java. If you install only Oracle Java JRE 10, then it will not appear in.

This tutorial shows you how to install Java SE 7 Developer Preview on Mac OS X 10.7.2 Lion running on my MacBook Pro.

1. Download the Oracle JDK7 Mac OS X port dmg file from here. At the time of this writing, the version of the JDK7 is Oracle JDK7 build b223 released on December 23, 2011. The dmg file name is jdk-7-ea-macosx-b223.dmg

2. Create a JavaVirtualMachines folder under /Library/Java if it doesn’t exist.

In my case, the JavaVirtualMachines is already there so I don’t need to create it manually.

3. Open the jdk-7-ea-macosx-b223.dmg file by double-clicking on it. Then drag the JDK 1.7.0 Developer Preview icon in the left side to the JavaVirtualMachines icon folder in the right side.

4. Go to /Library/Java/JavaVirtualMachines directory using Finder application. Then double-click the ‘JDK 1.7.0 Developer Preview’ icon. This will open the Java Preferences window. Here you can change the preferred order of the installed Java platforms by dragging it up or down. Make sure the Java SE 7 is in the preferred order or you can simply deselect the Java SE 6 version.

5. Now issue the ‘java -version’ command in the terminal window to verify.

6. Done

The following are the system requirements for installing the JDK and the JRE on macOS:

Java 7 Oracle For Mac Versions

  • Any Intel-based computer running macOS.

  • Administrator privileges.

    You cannot install Java for a single user. Installing the JDK and JRE on macOS is performed on a systemwide basis for all users. Administrator privileges are required to install the JDK and JRE on macOS.

  • When you install the JDK, it also installs the JRE. However, the system will not replace the current JRE with a lower version.

    To determine the current JRE version installed on your system, see Determining the JRE Version Installed on macOS. To install an earlier version of the JRE, you must first uninstall the current version. See Uninstalling the JRE on macOS.

  • When you install the JRE, you can install only one JRE on your system at a time. The system will not install a JRE that has an earlier version than the current version.

    To determine the current JRE version installed on your system, see Determining the JRE Version Installed on macOS. To install an earlier version of the JRE, you must first uninstall the current version. See Uninstalling the JRE on macOS.

    Note:

    Installing a JRE from Oracle will not update java -version symlinks or add java to your path. To do this, you must install the JDK.
