    Hey everyone!

    First of all, thanks for reading my topic (and hopefully helping me)!
    So here's my problem:
    I don't have java preferences on my Mac?
    It's not in my utilities folder, and can't find it with spotlight?

    Help me?
    Thanks :)

    That may be because Java is not installed on Mountain Lion.

    Java is not installed by default now, but if you did previously have it installed a recent Apple update removed the Java Pref app your are talking about and turned Java updates over to Oracle.

    I found this out too, right after I installed ML and was going to a webcam site that needed Java. I had to re-download it.

    I don't have it either. Do I just go to Java website and download it or what? Thanks

    Open Terminal in your utilities folder. Just type "java" at the prompt and press enter. It'll prompt to auto download and install.
