#7115: Run Cyberduck with Java 7 instead of Java 6 on Mac OS X
    Reporter:  cvoelker  |      Owner:
        Type:  defect    |     Status:  new
    Priority:  normal    |  Milestone:
   Component:  core      |    Version:  4.2.1
    Severity:  normal    |   Keywords:
Architecture:  Intel     |   Platform:  Mac OS X 10.8

 this may be loosely related to Issue #7113, but I believe it is still
 different. I have a machine running Mac OS X Mountain Lion 10.8.2. I
 downloaded and installed the current JRE from java.com, which is Java 7
 Update 15 as of now.

 When typing "java -version" in Terminal, Mac OS still pretends that there
 is *no* Java installed and offers to install Java 6 from Apples Update
 Servers. However Id prefer not to bother with Java 6 any longer as Oracle
 will cease public support for Java 6 within the next weeks and Apple will
 probably follow this. Plus, there is no simple solution for removing Java
 6 cleanly once it is installed on a Mac.

 Launching Cyberduck it seems to use the routines from Apple to check for a
 Java version installed. Consequently it misses the already installed Java
 7 SE JRE as well and asks the user to install Java 6 (which seems to be a
 bad advice meanwhile).

 Or is it a simple misunderstanding: Does Cyberduck require the Java 7 SE
 JDK to be installed instead of the JRE?

 Either fix or a hint the FAQ what to do to use Java 7 are appreciated a

 Bye, Christian
