    Hello,

    I have an App (PhpStorm) that requires > Java SE 6, which apparently is not installed after my upgrade. Now, trying to install JDK8u5 from Oracle's web site, I get an error that "Java from Oracle requires Mac OS X 10.7.3 or later."

    Anyone?

    I've have java running on mine but I did an upgrade rather than a clean install!
    I know it's not much help but maybe try installing mavericks then java then do the upgrade.

    I did the same. Upgraded from Mavericks (with Java) to Yosemite.

    If you want to install Java 6 then you can get it from here http://support.apple.com/kb/dl1572

    If you want to install Java 7 or 8 from an Oracle installer you need to fake the installer to think you are running under OS X 10.9 by editing the file: /System/Library/CoreServices/SystemVersion.plist. Make sure you change the version back to 10.10 when you are done installing.

    Hope this helps.

    Thank you, sir. It most certainly did.

    I have reinstalled Java 6 from Apple's website and Java 8 by changing the version to 10.9, but still PhpStorm fails to start (as well as IntelliJ IDEA, PyCharm and AppCode)... Does it work for you?
