Java, a new round. Round 7

After fighting against Java 6 from Apple I decided to install Java 7 and have a look into that. To say the least, I still feel quite nauseous so I keep this EXTREMELY short.

To get rid of Java 7 from Oracle you have to do this:

Remove JRE

  • Navigate to /Library/Internet Plug-Ins and remove the JavaAppletPlugin.plugin directory
  • Navigate to /Library/PreferencePanes and remove JavaControlPanel.prefpane

Remove JDK

Navigate to /Library/Java/JavaVirtualMachines and remove the directory of the JDK you want to get rid of.

Removing the Pref-Panel

sudo rm -rf /Library/PreferencePanes/JavaControlPanel.prefpane
