Java for mac users windows 10

This is my first MAC ever and I'm still trying to get the hang of navigating my way around. Anyway, I'm also new to Java and I've been practicing on my Windows PC before it permanently died. Now that I'm on this MAC, I installed my JDK and now I need to set the JAVAHOME environment variable. I have no idea what to do.

Java For Mac UsersUsers

Apr 27, 2012 Oracle released Java SE 7 Update 4 this week, which finally gives Mac owners the means to receive critical Java security patches at the same time they're available for users of Windows and Linux. The only way to update from Java 6 (1.6)—the last version supported by Apple—to Java 7 is by manually downloading and installing it from Oracle. And apparently few Mac users have done so. Already own Minecraft? Download it again for Windows, Mac and Linux. Download server software for Java and Bedrock and play with your friends.

    Available for: Mac OS X v10.6.3, Mac OS X Server v10.6.3

    Impact: Multiple vulnerabilities in Java 1.6.0_17

    Description: Multiple vulnerabilities exist in Java 1.6.0_17, the most serious of which may allow an untrusted Java applet to execute arbitrary code outside the Java sandbox. Visiting a web page containing a maliciously crafted untrusted Java applet may lead to arbitrary code execution with the privileges of the current user. These issues are addressed by updating to Java version 1.6.0_20. Further information is available via the Sun Java website at http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/java/javase/releasenotes-136954.html

Java For Macs

The following are the system requirements for installing the JDK and the JRE on macOS:

  • Any Intel-based computer running macOS.

  • Administrator privileges.

    You cannot install Java for a single user. Installing the JDK and JRE on macOS is performed on a systemwide basis for all users. Administrator privileges are required to install the JDK and JRE on macOS.

  • When you install the JDK, it also installs the JRE. However, the system will not replace the current JRE with a lower version.

    To determine the current JRE version installed on your system, see Determining the JRE Version Installed on macOS. To install an earlier version of the JRE, you must first uninstall the current version. See Uninstalling the JRE on macOS.

  • When you install the JRE, you can install only one JRE on your system at a time. The system will not install a JRE that has an earlier version than the current version.

    To determine the current JRE version installed on your system, see Determining the JRE Version Installed on macOS. To install an earlier version of the JRE, you must first uninstall the current version. See Uninstalling the JRE on macOS.

    Note:

    Installing a JRE from Oracle will not update java -version symlinks or add java to your path. To do this, you must install the JDK.
