After upgrading to Mountian Lion on both my MacBook Air and my wife's MacBook Pro, I recieved a prompt asking to install Java (I did not get this on my iMac).
I was wondering what triggered this event for it to ask for Java. Was it because a Java runtime was there previously? I don't remember installing one (and not sure why my Air would ask, but not my iMac, many more things are installed on my iMac).
How can I find out what triggered this? Also, how can I remove a runtime if an older, and now incompatible one was there?
Is there also a place where an older JVM may have been, and where it saw it there and decided to prompt me? If so, that would help me track down the notice, but also remove it from my machine.
