    Hi, I have Java 7 installed on my mac and I just tried to install Adobe Illustrator. The installation went well but when I launch the application, it prompts me to install Java 6 although I have java 7 installed. The same problem appeared once before when I tried to install Eclipse for PHP.

    I remember that I've read somewhere that it is not possible to have both versions of Java installed on the same mac. If then, how do I handle this kind of issues?

    You can have both installed at the same time with no problem. Some apps require the older version.
