Java Preferences using JRE 7u6 Mac OS X
I've been testing my Swing application on mac os x which runs on an applet. Because JDK7u4 does not support Applets, I decided to try the JRE 7u6 Preview.
Following the installation instructions I was able to make the new plugin to work, or at least that's what the Test Java Applet says (http://www.java.com/en/download/testjava.jsp).
The next step was to try my application. I noticed several problems / differences when running JRE 6u31: the popups appear in different positions, the mouse over in the menuItems is not working, etc.
But the problem is that I'm not able to open the Java Console so I can check if there are some exceptions occurring. Initially I thought was because the Java console was hidden, but when I open the Java Preferences (Utilities->Java Preferences) on the mac to check that property, I notice that the advanced tab was not present. Actually none of the tabs is present. The only thing I see is the Java versions I have installed and that's it.
If I remove the JRE7u6 preview and start using the JRE6 everything works fine.
So, am I missing something in the installation process? Is there other Mac users with the same problem?
Thanks in advance,
P.S.: There is a screenshot attached so you can have a look.
