For more details see our on reverting to an earlier version of Mac OS X. Another Terminal workaround Another Terminal-based workaround, previously published on MacFixIt for a similar issue, has proven successful in this case.
May 19, 2003 I downloaded the 1.3.1 plug-in but OS X won't let me install it. The reason I need to do this is that I have an applet that I'm trying to get running on my Mac. It was developed on and runs fine on my win xp system using 1.3.1. Users of Lion Mac OS X 10.7.1 and 10.7.2 should upgrade to 10.7.3 or later versions, so you can get the latest Java version from Oracle. Is it safe to install previous or older versions of Java? Oracle highly discourages users from using older versions of Java.
The Swing API. Basic things like moving between text boxes, pulling down menus, and resizing windows are all up to Apple's implementation of the JVM. Although they're doing a fantastic job, it could still be improved a lot. This has nothing to do with the end programmer fixing up their own algorithms! This update apparently improves graphics hardware acceleration for Java (haven't tested it yet). It's still somewhat experimental, so you have to turn it on manually. With the new update, you specify the video cards for which you want it enabled.
This update delivers improvements for text, mouse, and printing components in the Java 1.3.1 implementation for Mac OS X, and improves its overall stability and compatibility. The implementation of text components has been completely updated, resolving a number of issues found in the use of TextAreas and TextFields.
Also, I have noticed that LimeWire has a 'real' menubar at the top of the screen (the sort of 'standard' menubar used in OS X programs) - I don't know if this is something new with the Java update or the LimeWire update, but it looks like it was part of the Java update. Now I can actually use LimeWire.
IE' 5.0's (in OS 9.2.2) Download Manager said it was 'completed'.of course it wasn't. Tried the same in Netscape 4.7 (OS 9.2.2) and only 2.3 MB downloaded.had the Stuffit Icon though. Finally booted into OS X 10.1.3 and used the software update.
In Safari this can be accomplished by opening the application's preferences, clicking the 'Security' tab, then unchecking the 'Enable Java' option. Getting the Java update off your Mac Like a number of other key Mac OS X components, an easy method for downgrading to a previous release is elusive for Java 1.3.1 and 1.4.2 Release 2.
You can turn on or off whatever stories you want; i turned on science, which has a new post almost every day, as does apple, but only gets 5-10 posts per article. You can do this with apple post/stories also. People who want it, will get it, and those who don't won't. On the other hand, this is probaly an attempt to get more reader impressions, as there's a rabid mac fanbase on the web yet, and slashdot is making an attempt to tap that potential, not to mention drag apple users into the 'slashdot reality distoriton field', err, the main slashdot site. Apple.slashdot.org doesn't take up much more, if any bandwidth than the normal site, and only serves to increase readership. A marketing tactic, basically. Read macslash if you don't like apple.slashdot.com, they're the same thing essentially, just that one posts a story faster than the other occasionally.
This feature should be included in the update apps preferences I think.Well, I've got a solution for you! Here's a quick tip. When Software update has finished downloading the file, it places it in /tmp/501 (this seems to be the directory for all downloads).
[quote]Originally posted by FreshApple: All I can say is WOW!!!!!! [snip] Now I can actually use LimeWire.You really should update things one at a time and pay attention to the changes from each. Everything you mentioned was due to the update of LimeWire. Version 2.2.1 added the global menubar, optimized for speed, changed the resize mechanism, etc. In fact, almost all of these changes were already very commonly available for OSX's LimeWire as 'hacks' by changing just a few lines in the code. Basically, LimeWire (well, specifically ZeroG Software) just finally got off the asses and implemented the things people had been telling them to do for months. Had one problem.
The article contains information about Java Update 1.4.1(Panther) and a link to the software download. The Java 1.4.1 Update for Panther ensures that your system has a complete Java installation. It contains support for both Java 1.4.1 and Java 1.3.1. Some customers who did an upgrade install of Mac OS X v10.3 'Panther' from Mac OS X v10.2 may have an incomplete installation of Java.
Ok, before this new update the Java Runtime was already at 1.3.1. This update just made that faster and more stable in some areas. It is my guess that Apple will also have 1.4 coming out around the time MacOS 10.2 is released. That said, I am running Netbeans to do Java development on my white iBook and it works great. With this new update it makes it much more reasonable in terms of speed and responsiveness. And I am glad to have an alternative to Windows for Java. As for applications being released for Java 1.4, that is just stupid.
Nothing will keep someone from deploying an application with the same abilities to a 1.4 vs a 1.3.1 level runtime.

Depending on the computer hardware's state of upgrade, the practical step with an older computer would be to get the latest OS X version it can comfortably use, while the disc sets may be available. At resale, the old Tiger 10.4 is sometimes more costly than retail; few unused discs exist. Since you posted this in a Tiger 10.4.11 support forum, appears the idea of possible need to consider it exists. Readtree for mac. In some cases, Tiger is a good alternative to Leopard when an older machine can work flawlessly with Tiger. At least until the need for newer software outstrip the ability of Tiger to run them. Then retire the computer to whatever functions it can do, then, best, with Tiger.
Thing is that this downloading problem occured too with the OS X 10.1.3 update. It did finally work after three tries.on a 56 kb modem. I like to back up any update before installing them in case something disasterous happens and I don't have to download all them again. This feature should be included in the update apps preferences I think. What's with that? Anybody have the same downloading issues?
Is a replacement for it, but apparently I am afraid I might have made a mistake. So far my computer has not had any problems, but I am worried it will later. Also Java seems to be working ok. If anyone thinks this is not a mistake, or can fill me in on information whether I needed the file or not please let me know. Or if someone can just e-mail me the file I deleted, maybe that will work. Thanks, Shane I am running the latest version of Panther on a Quicksilver G4.

All I can say is WOW!!!!!! LimeWire used to be REALLY slow, so slow that I couldn't use it, since clicking on things often would only result in the alert sound, and nothing happens. Since installing Java 1.3.1 Update 1, it is WAY faster - just as fast as carbon and cocoa apps.
The [apple.com] explain how to do this, but give the wrong path for the config file that has the names of the video cards your machine might support. The correct path seems to be: /Library/Java/Home/lib/glconfigurationlist.proper t ies Curious to see if there's an improvement. Though the low-level stuff is blazingly fast on OS X, the high-level, especially Swing, has been pretty sluggish. I know you're trolling, but i'll bite anyways. Slashdot is completely configureable.
It also takes time for developers to take advantage of the new features in 1.4. From what I read of your post, you do not understand the nature of software development. Being the most up to date with the latest Java spec is not always an advantage for an application. Often is bases it on a loose foundation which is not proven. And from what I have seen of 1.4, it just integrated several Java frameworks which you can simply include as Jar files with 1.3.1 level applications.
Is there any way to either delete 1.4.1, disable 1.4.1 and/or choose 1.3.1, anything like that? I downloaded the 1.3.1 plug-in but OS X won't let me install it. The reason I need to do this is that I have an applet that I'm trying to get running on my Mac. It was developed on and runs fine on my win xp system using 1.3.1. I was just wondering if there was an issue with my applet and 1.4.1. Thanks for any help, Dan.
I wonder if breaking the dependence on specific directories for system apps would be an easy thing for them to fix or not - if they couldn't look for the app where it 'should' be installed, would they just have to do a search to find it? Would that be a performance hit? Definitely a weakness of the update feature, though. However, with MacOS X the installer scripts continue to be intolerant of moving applications from their default directory (typically '/Applications'). For example, I moved the '/Applications/Mail' app to '/Applications/Internet/Mail' and MacOS X 10.1.3 failed to update it properly. This has been mentioned on MacFixit as well. This was posted on MacIntouch the other day: In the System 6-9 days, Apple used an installer that used a quasi-proprietary file format known as 'tomes.'
The latest Java update for Panther 10.3.9 was 1.4.2_12 and was known as 'Java for Mac OS X 10.3 Update 5.' This dealt with a matter of the time zone corrections due to changes in daylight savings time, & a few other issues. It would appear the OS X 10.3.9 system is too old for 1.5. Depending on the computer hardware's state of upgrade, the practical step with an older computer would be to get the latest OS X version it can comfortably use, while the disc sets may be available. At resale, the old Tiger 10.4 is sometimes more costly than retail; few unused discs exist.

Oh come on, now don't be ridiculous. The majority of slowness in Java under OS X (though it looks great), isn't in their 'basic graphical algorithms' (end programmer specific), it's in the tools which we are given to work with, i.e.
In addition, jdk 1.4.0 was recently released for those platforms as well so when is it going to be available on the mac? Apple and Sun (I believe they are cooperating)need to speed up the development if they want to lure Java developers to their OS. It's a fine OS no doubt, but being able to run an up to date JVM is pretty essential if you are developing Java. Basically anything you start developing today will most likely be deployed on a jdk 1.4.x environment. I think you are misunderstanding something. This was not an update to Java 1.3.1, it is an update of the MacOS X JVM, which has been running Java 1.3.1 for a while. Many of the bug fixes here will benefit Apple's implementation of Java 1.4.
The biggest difference perhaps is that Apple doesn't have that many critical fixes for security, in part because it's BSD now, but also probably due to the fact that no one is banging as hard on OS X as they are on XP. (No one gets famous finding OS X security holes, but you'll get 15 minutes and more if you find a hole in XP.:). Obviously the Software Update version finder engine depends upon strict directory structures to compile a database of current applications. I don't know much about OS X's file system, but do they have anything similar to the Windows Registry, which provides a centralized database of installed apps? Does OS X have a desktop file for this?

The best bet for a comprehensive uninstallation that eliminates all remnants of the release is to perform an Archive and Install procedure than apply appropriate Mac OS X and security updates, but refrain from re-installing the Java update via these steps: • Make a full backup of your current Mac OS X installation • Perform an Archive and Install, via the following steps: insert your Mac OS X CD or DVD. Restart your machine and hold down the 'C' key to boot from the newly inserted disc. Follow the on-screen instructions, and after accepting the license agreement, click 'Options.' Select 'Archive and Install,' and check the 'Preserve User and Network Settings' option. • Bring your installation back up to the point of revision right before you started having problems. This means applying the Mac OS X 10.4.2 Combo Updater (available through Software Update) and any Security Updates released since the pressing of your Mac OS X retail disc.
Someone please help. I think I made a really stupid mistake. In the Applications/ Utilities / Java folder, there is a file(application) called 'Java 1.3.1 Plugin Settings', there is also a 'Java 1.4.2 Plugin Settings'. I deleted the 1.3.1 file thinking the 1.4.2.
It just came out and there surely will not be applications already based on 1.4. Most will safely lag behind at 1.3.1 where it is stable while 1.4 becomes more established.
It involves setting a higher timeout for the lookupd process. Open the Terminal, and enter the following commands, pressing return after each one. • sudo mkdir /etc/lookupd • sudo sh -c 'echo TimeToLive 300 > /etc/lookupd/hosts' • sudo sh -c 'echo ValidateCache NO >> /etc/lookupd/hosts' After entering these commands, restart your Mac and power cycle any network adapters (Cable/DSL modems), AirPort base stations, other routers, etc.
Apple has been working hard to get their JVM up to snuff and get the hardware Swing acceleration working reliably. Remember, too, that you cannot de-couple completely the OS and the JVM. This update required that you have the OS X 10.1.3 update already installed. Someone else said that Apple will have a preview version of 1.4 available at WWDC in May and I'd expect that the production version will probably be part of OS X 10.2 sometime this summer. A lot of us are wondering about 1.4.
Apple did have that little [macworld.com], but even that was corrected later the same day. I'd just like to give the OS X team at Apple kudos for releasing updates on a regular basis, and showing themselves to be committed to improving OS X. If nothing else, it's fun to be the hamster pressing on the Software Update button and getting rewarded with food pellets every so often. Ever run Windows Update.there's always some little items listed under the 'Critical Fix' section. That's true - I'd forgotten about Windows Update. Still, I prefer Apple's method for updating - whether they're fixing bugs or not, the spin is always on the added functionality. Critical Updates makes it sound like 'If you don't download this patch, you're fscked', whereas grabbing 10.1.3 is more like 'Here, take this little point release, we hope it makes your life better.'
Your system does not have a complete installation of Java, then the Java 1.4.1. Update will be available for download. You can also use the manual update if this is more convenient. For help with downloading, see. All software available from this site is covered by a software license agreement included with this software. Keywords:kbdload kmosX3.
Though, I am pretty sure the directory is deleted when you restart. So, if it asks to restart, be sure to grab that file quickly! [: Message edited by: starfleetX ] •. Don't know about LimeWire but this update makes a MAJOR improvement to Java performance. I've been trying to run NetBeans (3.3) on my PowerMac G4 (466/968Mb) and have been thinking about giving up and going back to using PC ( Java 1.4 on Win32 really moves). Anyway this upgrade makes OS X a viable Java development platform once again.
Apple today provided an update to the Java software used in Mac OS X. The update is in the form of a 21.1MB download now available to Mac OS X users through the Software Update system preference.
