    Default Which Java should I install under OS X 10.9 (client)

    I'm running 64 bit OS X 10.9 (client, not server). I'm trying to sort out which version of Java I should install. I will not be doing any Java development on this computer. thanks

    In the Wowza java installation instructions, I go to:

    http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/ja...ads/index.html

    … click on Server JRE:

    http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/ja...s-2133154.html

    … but there are no OS X installers, just:

    Linux x64 55.56 MB server-jre-8u5-linux-x64.tar.gz
    Solaris SPARC 64-bit 66.13 MB server-jre-8u5-solaris-sparcv9.tar.gz
    Solaris x64 63.79 MB server-jre-8u5-solaris-x64.tar.gz
    Windows x64 52.28 MB server-jre-8u5-windows-x64.tar.gz

    Clicking JRE takes me to:

    http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/ja...s-2133155.html

    Java SE Runtime Environment 8 Downloads

    … and has:

    Mac OS X x64 56.61 MB jre-8u5-macosx-x64.dmg

    Clicking JDK takes me to:

    http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/ja...s-2133151.html

    Java SE Development Kit 8 Downloads

    … and has:

    Mac OS X x64 207.79 MB jdk-8u5-macosx-x64.dmg

    I just received direction, and will proceed:

    I would try this:

    >> Mac OS X x64 56.61 MB jre-8u5-macosx-x64.dmg

    This is a 64-bit Mac OS X package, which suggests appropriate compatibility.

    >> Mac OS X x64 207.79 MB jdk-8u5-macosx-x64.dmg

    This looks like the jre, but includes development tool. Will likely serve the same function as the jre.

    I installed jre-8u11-macosx-x64, and rebooted, but without success. I have a ticket on this, but thought I'd post here to in case anyone has run into this:

    I did not do this: "To start Wowza Streaming Engine as a Mac OS X launchd service" I am using the start and stop standalone mode apps for now. When I ran the start standalone app, I got a dialog: "Click OK to start the standalone Wowza Streaming Engine. This will disable the services." I clicked OK, and authenticated. Terminal output:

    cd /Library/WowzaStreamingEngine/manager/bin;./startmgr.sh;exit
    mele:~ admin$ cd /Library/WowzaStreamingEngine/manager/bin;./startmgr.sh;exit
    No Java runtime present, requesting install.
    logout

    [Process completed]

    Clicking "More Info…" took me to http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/ja...ads/index.html .

    Rebooted again. A dialog: "Software Update" reads: "To open "java", you need a Java SE 6 runtime. Would you like to install one now?"

    Reinstalled the (same) Java from Oracle. Tested on the Oracle web site; got: "Verified Java Version
    Completion checkmark Congratulations! You have the recommended Java installed (Version 8 Update 11)."

    Start Standalone Mode still does not work.

    I suppose I could get the Java that Apple swupdate is pointing me to... (separate from the oracle site I just referred to)

    Up and running now. In case anyone else runs into this:

    I let the Apple Software Update process get the Java it wanted me to
    have.

    I tested at https://www.java.com/en/download/installed.jsp and got:

    Congratulations!

    *You have the recommended Java installed (Version 8 Update 11).*

    Interestingly, that is the same version reported after I installed Java from the Oracle site.
