The Apple Java for OS X 2012-006 1.0 update for Mac OS X 10.7, 10.8 operating systems delivers improved security, reliability, and compatibility by uninstalling the Apple-provided Java applet plug. Under Oracle Java, only a single version of the JRE can be installed at a time. See Installing the JRE on macOS. To access the Java Control Panel, in the System Preferences panel, click the Java icon. If you don’t see the Java icon in the System Preferences, in the Other section, then you do not have an Oracle.

To install the database, you don't need to install Microsoft .NET Framework 3.5. If you run into any issues installing and configuring the database, look at the README.txt file included in the DMG Archive for some useful tips.

  1. Download MySQL Community Server 5.5 DMG Archive.
  2. Double-click the DMG Archive, and then double-click the .pkg file that starts with mysql-5.5. Follow the instructions to install the MySQL server.
  3. Double-click the MySQLStartupItem.pkg file, and follow the instructions in the setup wizard. The wizard installs the MySQL server as an auto-startup item.
  4. Double-click the MySQL.prefPane file. The file installs the MySQL control panel into the System Preferences application so that you can control the MySQL server.
  5. Open the System Preferences application, and perform the following actions:
    1. In the Other section, click the MySQL icon.
    2. Click Start MySQL server to start the server.
    3. At the bottom of the control panel, you can also configure the MySQL server to run automatically on startup.
  6. To make it easier to access the mysql and mysqladmin programs, you can modify the PATH environment variable by performing the following actions:
    1. From a terminal window in your home directory, type the following command:
    2. Add the following statement to your existing PATH environment variable, or create a new entry if a PATH variable isn't already defined:
    3. Close the current terminal window, and open a new one for the changes to the PATH variable to take effect.
  7. From the terminal window, type the following command to set the root password:
  8. Change some of the default configuration values for MySQL so that they're more suitable for the Push Service SDK by performing the following actions:
    1. From a terminal window, type the following commands to copy one of the sample MySQL configuration files so that you can modify it:
    2. Open the configuration file by typing the following command:
    3. Add the following statements to the [mysqld] section of my.cnf file:

      The first statement configures the database so that it behaves like a traditional SQL database management system. The remaining statements configure the database so that it uses a UTF-8 character encoding.

      If you want to use a case-insensitive collation instead of a case-sensitive one, change collation_server to utf8_unicode_ci.

    4. Copy the modified my.cnf to /etc by typing the following command:
    5. Open the System Preferences application, and in the Other section, click the MySQL icon.
    6. Stop the MySQL server, and then start it again for the changes to take effect.

Create a server instance

  1. Download MySQL Workbench 5.2.
  2. On the Home screen for the MySQL Workbench, in the Server Administration section, click New Server Instance.
  3. Specify your root password by clicking Store In Keychain. Leave the remaining configuration values as they are.
  4. On the Create the Instance Profile screen, type the server instance name (for example, pushsdk).

Create the database schema

  1. On the Home screen for the MySQL Workbench, in the SQL Development section, double-click the database connection that you created when you created the server instance for the database.
  2. Click the dummy database in the Schema section, and then right-click and choose Create Schema.
  3. In the Name field, specify a name for the database schema (for example, pushsdk).
  4. In the Default Collation drop-down list, click utf8_bin for a case-sensitive collation type, or utf8_unicode_ci for a case-insensitive collation type.
  5. Click Apply twice.
  6. Click Close.

Create a user account for the database schema

The user account that you set up in this task is the user account that you use to access the database tables through a Push Initiator.

  1. On the Home screen for the MySQL Workbench, in the Server Administration section, double-click the server instance that you created.
  2. From the Management panel on the left, click Users and Privileges.
  3. Click Add Account at the bottom.
  4. Click the Login tab, and specify a login name and password for the user.
  5. In the Limit Connectivity to Hosts Matching field, type one or more names and host machines that the user can connect from (for example, localhost).
  6. Click Apply.
  7. On the Schema Privileges tab, in the Users column, click the user account you created.
  8. Click Add Entry.
  9. In the Host section, select the Selected host option.
  10. In the Selected Host drop-down list, click the host machine that you want to define the privileges for (for example, localhost).
  11. In the Schema section, select the Selected schema option.
  12. In the Selected schema list, click the database schema that you created and that you want to define the privileges for.
  13. Click OK.
  14. Select the newly created entry in the list, and click Select 'ALL' to assign the user all privileges for this database schema.
  15. Click Save Changes.

Create a new connection to the database schema

  1. On the Home screen for the MySQL Workbench, in the SQL Development section, click New Connection.
  2. In the Connection Name field, type a name for the connection.
  3. In the Hostname field, type the name of the host machine that the server instance is installed on (for example, localhost).
  4. In the Port field, type 3306.
  5. In the Username field, type the name of the user that you created for the database schema.
  6. In the Password field, click Store in Keychain .
  7. Type the password of the user that you created for the database schema.
  8. In the Default Schema field, type the name of the database schema that you created.
  9. Click OK.

Free Java Download For Mac

Hopefully, by now, everyone knows that Apple joined the OpenJDK project last year. What does that mean?

  • Apple will contribute the code that they used for their private Mac Java builds as GPL code to OpenJDK
  • Oracle will take over the stewardship of the Mac port of Java
  • Over time, the Mac platform will become a completely first-class citizen in the Java world
Java 7 For Mac Os

This is good news for Java developers who want to develop on Mac. It’s also good news for Mac users – as it means that, for example, the native Aqua look-and-feel will continue to be supported – so Java desktop apps on Mac will look lovely. I, for one, can’t wait to see what Nimbus look-and-feel will look like under native Aqua.

Over the last few days, there have been some developments – for example this wiki page, detailing the progress of the Mac port, has appeared. Buried at the bottom of the page is a link to a page where the open bugs for the Mac port are being publicly tracked (as they’re ported across from Apple’s internal system).

Development is focused around JDK 7 – the basic idea is to take a fork of the community-maintained BSD port, and add Apple’s code to it, to produce a Mac-specific port. Relevant bug fixes should be able to go both ways between the two related ports, where possible.

All of this is likely to take time, however. The official line from Oracle is that JDK 7 will GA with Windows, Linux and Solaris as first-class supported operating systems, and the Mac will release as soon as possible after, with the hope that at some point in the future updates for the Mac version will be released at the same time as other OSes.

This applies to the Oracle-supplied binary builds. Of course, the OpenJDK code (which Oracle regard as the reference implementation) will be available (and GPL) for anyone who wants to build their own binary.

Java 7 For Mac Os X

Here at, we think that we could be looking at roughly a 3 month gap between Java 7 GA and a Mac release – so maybe October 2011 if all goes well. For now, we’re pretty happy running the community-provided OpenJDK builds. There are occasional problems with non-fatal X11-related exceptions clogging up standard out – due to some of the Mac’s uniqueness, but on the whole, it’s not bad at all for a pre-release product.

Have you tried any of the community builds? Let us know what you think in the comments.
