    However I have noticed that Apple brought things back again and even if it was previously resolved I see now in XProtect.meta.plist
    Code:
    <key>MinimumPlugInBundleVersion</key>
    <string>1.7.11.22</string>
    and webstart doesn't work anymore.

    The problem was resolved by executing the above sudo command again.

      I thought I'd add our solution, which enables the Oracle Web Start to locate and use the Apple Java 6 JRE.

      Find the file $HOME/Library/Application Support/Oracle/Java/Deployment/deployment.properties

      Add the following lines (modify as needed, this is for example assuming there's only one JRE already in the file):

      deployment.javaws.jre.1.registered=false
      deployment.javaws.jre.1.enabled=true
      deployment.javaws.jre.1.osarch=x86_64
      deployment.javaws.jre.1.osname=Mac OS X
      deployment.javaws.jre.1.path=/Library/Java/Home/bin/java
      deployment.javaws.jre.1.location=http://java.sun.com/products/autodl/j2se
      deployment.javaws.jre.1.product=1.6.0
      deployment.javaws.jre.1.platform=1.6

      This way the Oracle Web Start will pick up the Apple JRE, and be able to run programs that needs Java 6 (Content Studio).

        The raw url has changed on github.

        Now the correct url to the script is:

        https://raw.githubusercontent.com/sk...aws-version.sh
