    Very easy to get Java installed on Lion

    Go to the Terminal


    java -version

    You get a message saying Java is not installed, Installing Java.

    Dialogue box comes up, Click Install.

    You get (build 1.6.0_26-b03-383-11A511) installed.

    please help somebody. I have upgraded to Lion and have installed java. when i try my charting package (via firefox , this charting package used to work on leapard) i get “TO USE THIS APPLET YOU NEED TO ENABLE JAVA PLUG IN”

    If i look in Java preferences i see the enable applet plug in check box is ticked.

    stumped now
