I am using a MackBook Pro with Mac OS X 10.8.2. I currently have Java 6 installed:
wdb-laptop:~ wdb$ java -version java version "1.6.0_37" Java(TM) SE Runtime Environment (build 1.6.0_37-b06-434-11M3909) Java HotSpot(TM) 64-Bit Server VM (build 20.12-b01-434, mixed mode)
I would like to install Java 7 to play with JavaFX, however, all of my apps for work are still on Java 6. So I would like to install Java 7 "on the side". Is his possible? If so, how? I want to make sure I will not loose my Java 6 installation if I run the .dmg from Oracle.
