    Default Java 7 (1.7.0_17) installation problem on Mac OSX

    Hi,
    I tried to install jdk-7u17-macosx-x64.dmg from the oracle site and the installer said that the installation was successful. It installed it under the following directory with the listed contents:
    /Library/Java/JavaVirtualMachines/jdk1.7.0_17.jdk/Contents
    drwxrwxr-x 15 root wheel 510 10 Apr 16:18 Home
    -rw-rw-r-- 1 root wheel 1577 2 Mar 02:10 Info.plist
    drwxrwxr-x 3 root wheel 102 10 Apr 16:18 MacOS

    But that installation seems to be incomplete.

    Earlier, when I had installed 1.6.0, I can see the following:
    /System/Library/Java/JavaVirtualMachines/1.6.0.jdk/Contents
    drwxr-xr-x 12 root wheel 408 20 Feb 22:31 Classes
    drwxr-xr-x 41 root wheel 1394 20 Feb 22:31 Commands
    drwxr-xr-x 6 root wheel 204 20 Feb 22:31 Home
    -rw-r--r-- 1 root wheel 1963 20 Feb 22:31 Info.plist
    drwxr-xr-x 50 root wheel 1700 20 Feb 22:31 Libraries
    drwxr-xr-x 3 root wheel 102 20 Feb 22:31 MacOS
    drwxr-xr-x 32 root wheel 1088 10 Nov 12:37 Resources
    -rw-r--r-- 1 root wheel 462 20 Feb 22:31 version.plist

    When I try to use the 1.7 installation in IntelliJ, it cant find classes.jar, and thus any of the java classes..
    The compiler flags red all over the project.

    I tried installing jdk-7u15-macosx-x64.dmg and I still get the same problem.

    Any idea what could be going wrong? Im running a MacBook Air with Mac OS X 10.7.5
    Thanks.

    Default Re: Java 7 (1.7.0_17) installation problem on Mac OSX

    This got solved by upgrading my IntelliJ from 10.5 to 12.1 CE. It appears that Oracle may have made some changes to the Java 1.7 installable, which intelliJ 10.5 cant handle, but 12.1 seems to understand well. Unless there is more to it than meets the eye. If so, please do reply to this thread to explain more detail. Thanks.
