This is confusing as can be.
I just got a new MacBook Pro with OS 10.6.7.
I want to write Java programs.
I understand I am supposed to have the Java JDK SE 1.6 installed.
I go to the Oracle site to download JDK SE 1.6 for Mac and I DO NOT SEE IT.
All I see is stuff for Windows, Solaris, and Unix.
I read some stuff on the Apple site: http://www.apple.com/macosx/specs.html
I scroll down halfway on the above web page. In the section "What's In the Box". It says it has this: Complete Java JDK, including javac, javadoc, ANT, and Maven tools.
I don't know if "Complete Java JDK" means JDK 1.6 SE, or if it means something else. I also do not know if this stuff is already installed on my machine. It says "What's in the Box" like you are going to buy the OS as a separate purchase. I just bought an entire new computer with OS 10.6.7 Snow Leopard. "What's In the Box" is not the same sentence as "You have this installed on your machine that you just bought".
I search around some of the directories on my MacBook Pro and I do not see any Java JDK.
I would love to say the Mac version of Java JDK SE 1.6 is "hiding in plain sight" from me. But that would be an extreme stretch of the phrase "plain sight".
I was going to use IntelliJ Community Edition and Java JDK SE 1.6 from the Oracle site. That was my "plan" anyway.
What should I do?
