I am trying to understand how and where Java is installed on my Mac (Mavericks this time) and I found this question and answers:

Here is mentioned

/System/Library/Frameworks/JavaVM.framework/Versions/Current/Commands. The binaries within that directory are stub applications

What are stub applications? They are not symbolic link?


Stub applications are smaller apps that do work for larger, more complex apps.

For example, an app can request information from a stub app concurrently with a main process that the original app is running. Then, the stub app can return information back to the main process that initiated the stub binary.

  • So, how do I find "JavaApplicationStub" in my computer when an app asks for it? – MicroMachine Feb 12 '19 at 20:36
