Mac OS Runtime for Java

Home Page Release Notes License:

Current Version: 1.5.1 (November 5, 1997) / 2.2.5 (June 5, 2001) / 2.2.6 (April 8, 2003)

Mac OS Runtime for Java is Apple's OS-level method for running Java applets on Mac OS 8 & 9 (this functionality is built into Mac OS X and kept current through OS X's software update). While some web browsers, including Netscape Navigator/Communicator come with their own Java implementations built-in, many other applications (such as Microsoft Internet Explorer) require this helper application to perform their Java-based tasks.

Version 2.2.6 is an upgrade to MRJ 2.2.5 which provides fixes that allow Oracle 11i client applications to communicate with Oracle's application servers over HTTPS. It is recommended that you only update to MRJ 2.2.6 if you need to use Oracle 11i client applications over HTTPS and that your Oracle software is properly configured to support HTTPS communication with Mac OS 9 clients. Otherwise, you should use MRJ 2.2.5.

Version 1.5.1 runs on older (68030) Macs and on system software as early as System 7.5.5.

Also, if you have an older Mac, be sure to check out the "Classic" applications page for more options.

Finally, take a look at ALEMIA if you think you know that name of an application, but aren't quite sure.

Of Note . . .

No, I don't accept reviews anymore for these older applications. With the creation of this page in the Orchard's late 2005 redesign, I only accept reviews for currently-developed applications that work on Mac OS X (or later....whatever that might be!!).
