Developers: Prevent GateKeeper 'Damaged application' warning on Java apps
Authored by: mawood40 on Jul 16, '13 09:39:52AM
There is another method to give an unsigned Java application permission to run on 10.8 Macs by using the GUI interface.
  1. Temporarily disable Gatekeeper. Go into System Preferences -> Security & Privacy and temporarily change the setting for "Allow applications downloaded from:" to be "Anywhere".
  2. Run the Java application, the system will tell you that the application was downloaded from the Internet and ask for permission to run it. Allow the application to run.
  3. Terminate the Java application
  4. Change Gatekeeper back to its previous settings (probably "Mac App Store and identified developers")
  5. Run the Java application again, it should just run without issues
