So I am a new Mac owner with Snow Leopard and I just bought a Java for Dummies book and I'm trying to find Java SE 6 JDK. ADC only has it for Leopard, not Snow Leopard. I need to figure out:
  • Java SE 6 JDK
  • JCreator
Any help would be much appreciated.
Thanks so much!!!

10.6.1 is snow leopard.

1.6.0_15-b03-219 <-- SE 6

if you don't believe that.... here's my preferences app for java.



In short, it's extremely rare that you'd only see SE6 for Leopard.. and not on it's successor

Put in a different way:

10.6.x, aka Snow Leopard, comes with Java 6 installed as part of the OS. As opposed to Windows, a separate install is not required to get Java 'out of the box'. This is what Dysfunction was pointing out with the two posts.

10.5.x, aka Leopard came with both Java 1.4 and Java 5 installed with Java 6 as an optional install.

In sum, if your running 10.6 you already have Java 6 (again, what Dysfunction was pointing out) with no other installation required on your part.

Take a look at Eclipse instead... there is no JCreator version for OS X.
