Get SPSS working again after the latest Java release
Authored by: owsla on Oct 25, '10 08:44:46AM
I had previously followed the directions to get Java 1.5 installed on Snow Leopard in order to resolve bugs in an older version of Matlab. After the recent Java update, I expected to have to follow them again, however, the Java update politely moved the Java 1.5 out of the way instead of deleting it. Here is what I did to restore the true Java 1.5:

$ cd /System/Library/Frameworks/JavaVM.framework/Versions/
$ sudo rm 1.5 1.5.0
$ sudo mv disabled/1.5.0/ .
$ sudo ln -s 1.5.0 1.5
