#8739 closed defect (duplicate) for MacOS X does not work with Java 7

Reported by: hanno.wirth@… Owned by: Radfahrer
Priority: normal Milestone:
Component: Installer MacOS Version: tested
Keywords: java7 Cc:


When starting the current version (5939) on MacOS X 10.8, the splash screen shows a warning that JOSM will soon stop to work with Java 6. After removing Java 6 from MacOS X and installing Java 7, will not run anymore. Instead, a request to install Java 6 is shown. Manually running "josm-tested.jar" from a command line in Terminal still works with Java 7.

In case I can help (testing, compiling etc.), please let me know.

A quick and dirty version is to execute the jar direct via

java -jar /Applications/

I don't know if the java apps are supported any longer or if the java 7 integration in Mac OS X 10.8 provided by Oracle does get better...

Just in short: JOSM works a bit slower in Java 7 under Mac OS X 10.8, but it works. It just lacks of integration into .app files.
