Fix Quark QLA server after Java update
Authored by: ploiku on Apr 27, '06 08:19:16PM

Did you talk with Quark or Apple?

Did you try Java Preferences?

Either way, this is (of course) totally unsupported and untested by Apple. Though this is a "hints & hacks" site, I'm just making sure that no one thinks this is official Apple policy - it's not. (This is just an extension of the general policy "don't mess about in /System").

Quoting an Apple engineer posting to the java-dev mailing list:

Please don't get in the habit of using "ln -s" to overwrite the symlinks Apple lays down. Several recent problem reports can be traced back to folks getting this wrong, or expecting things to work "normally" on an abnormal system. We want feedback and bugs from developers, but developers who have hacked on their system should always consider that they _are_ running on a hacked system when filing problem reports.
