Hi,

I'm looking for some one that can help me update my java to v7. I know it can be done and I even know where to get the download, but when I read the instructions it talks about all kinds of crap I donít understand how to use. (Like terminal) I would be very grateful if some one would take the time to give me some step by step understandable directions, or direct me some where that has them. I wish they had a installing java v7 on a Mac for dummies book.

Iím on an IMac OS X 10.7.2

This is the site that im talking about with the program and instruction:
Java SE Runtime Environment 7u1 download page

I don't think v 7 is ready for regular users yet. The fact that you have to compile from source code is a sign of this.

Merged threads - please don't crosspost.

You can get a prebuilt Java 7 technical preview here. Note though that the Java 7 technical preview is not stable software - it may crash on you.

Is there any reason you need Java 7?
