SoyLatte 10.6 bundle template

This is a simple template to use SoyLatte in Mac OS X 10.6 and have it appear in the JavaPreferences system.

You need to copy all of the contents of the /usr/local/soylatte16-i386-1.0.3/ directory into the directory contents/Home (inside the package), then copy the .jdk folder to /Library/Java/JavaVirtualMachines/


[Edit] revised based on suggestions by Mike Swingler, it now doesn’t advertise capabilities that the SoyLatte distribution doesn’t offer.

Also another version: This simply symlinks to the existing installation in /usr/local/soylatte16-i386-1.0.3/ and doesn’t require anything except copying the result to the /Library/Java/JavaVirtualMachines/ folder.

    Thanks – I was trying to get soylatte to be recognized by Java Preferences app on Intel Core Duo (32bit) Mac Mini running 10.5.8

    I downloaded your package, and then in a terminal did:

    sudo mv ~/Downloads/soylatte16-i386-1.0.3.jdk /System/Library/Java/JavaVirtualMachines/

    This got it to show up in the preferences app so I could select it.
    Unfortunately I still can’t get Skifta to recognize it – the installer still claims there’s no compatible Java 1.6. Maybe it is looking for a specific name?
