I'm running OS X 10.5.8 on an Intel iMac and don't have any immediate plans to upgrade to Snow Leopard. Am I able to upgrade Java to 1.6 somehow?
The release notes on Apple's website for Java are kind of cryptic and aren't clear what is necessary to upgrade Java to 1.6. (they mention that 1.6 only works on 64-bit Intel Macs... how do I know whether my Intel Mac is 64-bit or not?)
java -version says I'm running J2SE 1.5.0_19 and I don't understand how to upgrade from Java 1.5 to 1.6
update: I just downloaded the Java update from Apple, and I'm now running J2SE 1.5.0_20, not 1.6... argh.
