    Using Java SE 6 instead of 5
    I've installed Java SE 6, but when I enter `java -version`, it tells me it's still running SE 5. I know the update doesn't replace SE 5 with 6, but how do I use it?

    2.6GHz Core i7 15" MacBook Pro - 8GB DDR3 SDRAM - 750GB 7200 RPM HDD - GeForce 650M GT 1GB VRAM

    Execute that, then drag the different Java versions around to rank them by preference. Save changes, quit out of the program, and the deed is done.

    I just verified this myself by making Java 6 my first choice, and here is my output in the Terminal:

    $ java -version
    java version "1.6.0_05"
    Java(TM) SE Runtime Environment (build 1.6.0_05-b13-120)
    Java HotSpot(TM) 64-Bit Server VM (build 1.6.0_05-b13-52, mixed mode)
