10.6: Re-enable Java 1.4.2 and Java 1.5 apps in Snow Leopard
Authored by: jc_helary on Mar 27, '10 04:54:22AM

I've reinstalled the Java-Cocoa bridge on a 10.6.2 machine and NeoOffice was not able to launch properly. So be careful when you try this, there might be applications that suffer from the new settings.

In some cases it is important to restore the Java-Cocoa bridge for some specific apps but I would not abuse that.

On the other hand, reinstalling Java 1.5 seemed relatively harmless. It is necessary to reinstall again after each OS or Java upgrade but it does not seem to have harmful side effects.
