10.3: Repair Java after an upgrade install of 10.3
Authored by: chancer on Nov 02, '03 01:50:22PM
Well, I wasn't about to re-install the Essential System Software, not after all the tweaks I've done - thanks to this Web site!

I downloaded the latest version of Pacifist, launched it and told it to open the Mac OS X Install packages. Once it loaded the packages I searched and found the Java Package and told Pacifist to install it, replacing existing files and updating existing bundles. Worked like a charm!

I'm not sure if I needed to fix Java, though - I notice I had already been able to load Java applets in Safari. What exactly was broken? Would I ever have noticed? I'm not a programmer and don't need to write anything in Java myself.

I did this and it worked great.

Anyone know if Software Update will catch that a package was rolled back to the original distribution and re-update?
