Is there a way to determine what application wants Java installed?
I recently installed OSX Mountain Lion and as you know, the default install removes any java VM, offering you to install it if something needs it.
After login in, something does try to launch 'java' and brings up the "To open 'java' you need to install Java SE 6 runtime. Would you like to install one now?".
Problem is, I have no idea what is trying to launch java and would like, instead of installing it again, to find out whether I need this or not.
I looked in my login items, removed all of them. Looked into "Macintosh HD/Startup Items" and temporarily removed stuff there too. To no avail.
Now I'm not discounting user error when trying to diagnose this but I'l love to know if there is an easy way to find out what process is trying to launch 'java'.
