Hi, there was a similar topic (Snow Leopard 10.6.1 and J2SE 4 and 5 - http://lists.apple.com/archives/java-dev/2009/Nov/msg00077.html), but I think a new one is better, because my matter is slightly different. Firstly, I've used this solution to install java 1.5 on Mac 10.6: http://chxor.chxo.com/post/183013153/installing-java-1-5-on-snow-leopard and this java version: http://www.apple.com/downloads/macosx/apple/application_updates/javaformacosx105update6.html But the problem here is, I had to use 3d party shareware tool and its not officially supported by Apple to install java 1.5 on Mac 10.6. As far as I know its not allowed to ship java 1.5 binaries together with your own software (which requires java 1.5 and doesn't work with java 1.6 even in compatibility mode), so the users have to install java 1.5 on its own. The question is: why do you provide/allow java 1.3.1 and 1.6.0 on Snow Leopard but not also java 1.4 and java 1.5? There are so many software which requires either 1.4 or/and 1.5 but also doesn't work with 1.6. I know its end of life and whatnot but why 1.6 only? Would it be not possible, Apple would allow/provide official installers for java 1.5 for Snow Leopard? Another question, if prev. one is not possible: is there a way to install java 1.5 on Mac 10.6 without Pacifist? If yes, could it be done in a automated way? If yes, is this legal from apple point of view? Do I have to consider any additional juridical stuff when I'm allowed to provide information to my users, how they can install java 1.5 on Mac 10.6? Do I have to cinsider another juridical stuff when I'm allowed to script automed java 1.5 installation on Snow Leopard? Thanks for any help, Sergiy _______________________________________________ Do not post admin requests to the list. They will be ignored.
