Problem with java version on Mac

Recommended Posts



I've installed Energia on Mac Yosemite. Java version is 1.7.0_65.


When starting Energia I get the error message that "Energia requires the old Java SE 6-Runtime-Version".


How can I run Energia with the new Java version?

Or how can I install the old version - where do I get it from?


With best regards,

I was worry about having two version of Java on my system, since the Oracle and Apple version are pretty different.


I installed the old Apple Java 6 from the link above, and it work great. Energy is running, but above all, the installer did not mess with my configs files.

I just received a CC3200 evaluation kit. I am a first time user of Energia and I tried to install it on a Mac running Yosemite (which already had Java 8 installed).


After reading this thread I checked if I could install Apple's old Java 6 but the link on your website to the download page no longer works. https://github.com/energia/Energia/wiki/Getting-Started 


So +1 from me for having Energia work with a more recent version of Java please.
