Latest Apple Java 10.6 Update 3

Hi,

   I read in the release notes that the paths have changed for the Java installation, and it expresses concerns as to how IDEs might handle it. Has anyone updated to the latest Java Update and does IntelliJ works ok with it? Don't want to update and then get stuck without my favorite IDE....

Yep, IDEA works fine, the only thing you'll need is to reconfigure project JDK to point to /Library/Java/JavaVirtualMachines/jdk1.6.0[minor_version].jdk and download JavaDeveloper package for sources (it's not included into automatic update). We also noticed some overall color gamma change in IDEA (lighter icons, etc) of unknown reason after installing an update.

access to?

It's free but you have to be registered in Apple Developer Connection.

Hi,
I have problem getting to work sources and documentations.
Of course I installed Java Dev Package.
Do you see them?

Here
http://developer.apple.com/library/mac/#releasenotes/Java/JavaSnowLeopardUpdate3LeopardUpdate8RN/NewandNoteworthy/NewandNoteworthy.html
I found docs shall be under:
/usr/share/java
but there I see only docs for a few libraries.

Thanks.

Mine is located under /Library/Java/JavaVirtualMachines/JDK_VERSION/Contents/Home/src.jar

Try to reconfigure JDK by defining its home - IDEA should automatically discover src.jar

Same for docs, but the jar is called appledocs.jar

Thanks, the problem was I used JDK from this path:
/System/Library/Java/JavaVirtualMachines/1.6.0.jdk/Contents/Home
