Followed solution here - Java for OS X 2012-006: How to re-enable the Apple-provided Java SE 6 applet plug-in and Web Start functionality to restore browser java plug-in, works fine now.

But still can not launch jnlp application. If I launch it by simply double-clicking in finder I get message that I need to download Java Runtime Environment.

At the same time if I use terminal and write javaws myapp.jnlp it launches correctly.

What the issue may be and how can I fix it?

$ 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)

Update: I have updated to 1.7 and now it works correctly. Just for your information.

  • What does java -version show? What OS X version do you use? – jaume Nov 8 '12 at 8:32
  • I believe the latest Apple update - 1.6.0_37 – Stonerain Nov 8 '12 at 9:48
  • It'd be great if you knew it :-) I asked because I installed Oracle Java 7 on my MacBook Pro but LibreOffice complained and OS X wanted to install Java. I finally gave up, uninstalled Java 7 and installed Apple's Java. I wonder what would get installed on your Mac if you accepted the request to download a JRE... – jaume Nov 8 '12 at 10:05
  • If I click on 'More info' button in the window I get transferred to Oracle site which offers Java 7 to install. Updated Java information. – Stonerain Nov 8 '12 at 20:07
