    Java and Gradebook
    I am an IT staff for a small school. We are entirely Microsoft based but i do provide support for teachers and staff who use MAC. Two teachers just bought new 15" laptops based on MAC OS X. 1.8

    There is a school wide program all teachers use called Gradebook. We had an issue with a recent update with Java, moving from 6 to 7. If Java 7 is installed Gradebook does not operate correctly, in fact it does not work at all. With Microsoft we simply uninstall 7 and install java 6 from the java archives.

    On a mac... this is a different story.

    I believed this was the correct java installation - http://support.apple.com/kb/DL1572?viewlocale=en_US

    But after installing it there was no success! Any help with finding java 6 for mac os x for version 1.7 and up?

    ANY help will be appreciated!

    Okay, while I never like rolling back a java version because of all the vulnerabilities this opens here is a link to a support article from apple: Java for OS X 2013-005: How to re-enable the Apple-provided Java SE 6 web plug-in and Web Start functionality.

    Hope this helps!

    Lisa,

    Although your suggestion did not work, i figured out the correct java update and it worked perfectly fine

    I appreciate your support!

    Java Archive Downloads - Java SE 7 <-- that is the link which solved my issue.

    Thanks again.

    I am glad you found the solution. I am a retired teacher and we used progressbook (web based) for our grades. We use to have all kinds of interesting difficulties with it that ALWAYS cropped up when grades were due to be posted. :-)
