    intel mac, 10.5.7
    Need help with java update for 64-bit intel mac, 10.5.7
    Help. Although I use a mac all day at work as a designer, I've just started learning how to service my own mac at home and I don't want to mess it up!!!

    I want to update my java so I can run real-time online auctions. Currently I have JSE5.0, 1.5.0-22. My prefs indicate I'm running a 32-bit java. Can I update using java 1.6 for 10.5, 64-bit?

    My system uses 10.5.7 on an imac. Need to know anything else?

    Any help would be much appreciated!!

    Java is integrated into OS X and the installation is distributed and maintained by Apple. Long story made short, if Software Update says that you're good to go, you need not touch anything. Your real-time auctions should be fine.
    Liquid and computers don't mix. It might seem simple, but we see an incredible amount of people post here about spills. Keep drinks and other liquids away from your expensive electronics!

    If you're really concerned about versions of Java, open up /Applications/Utilities/Java and change the default version there. You may or may not have JavaSE 6 installed but since it is listed here as being updated with a Java update, you do probably have it installed.
