    I am running OSX 10.9.4 (Mavericks) on a Retina Macbook Pro,
    l have a brokers software that depends on java. l am currently running java version: 1.6.0_65, do l just go to http://support.apple.com/kb/DL1573 to download update 17? which is the latest version? when l had a pc l was instructed to uninstall the old java version first. do we have to do this with mac? if so how?

    This is the best place to get Java. You can get the complete installation files for all operating systems here. Installing a newer Java version automatically results in the removal of older versions in both Windows and OS X versions.

    About APPLE's JAVA: I may expect that updates come to us automatically,
    or from the App Store command.
    I would leave it alone while some applications still rely on it.
    It seems that ECLIPSE still uses 6, while the compiler supports 8.
    I installed ORACLE's JAVA 7 (soon 8) without uninstalling JAVA 6.

    Another observation: I tried installing newer releases from ORACLE without
    uninstalling the previous release: this gave me strange errors.
    So, as it is so easy on OSX, I just move the previous JAVA release to the Trash
    every time.
    ;JOOP!
