I need to test a web application with JRE 6. I am using a Mac with OS X 10.10 and Java 7 for development. How can I install JRE 6 next to Java 7 on this Mac?
This previous answer does not yet account for the fact (also mentioned in a comment) that Apple's download link by now points to a
.pkg (Java for OS X 2014-001) file. Without further knowledge I hasten to install it, for it may overwrite my current Java 7 setup (and may no longer contain JRE 6 in the first place).
