Installing the MySQL Enterprise Service Manager on Mac OS X requires an existing installation of Java. The minimum required version is 1.5.0_7. If this version is not installed on your machine you can download it from Apple. This version of Java requires Mac OS X version 10.4.5 as a minimum, so you may need to upgrade your operating system in order to install it.
For reasons of backwards compatibility, Mac OS X is usually
installed with multiple versions of Java. When installing in
osx mode, version 1.5.0_7 must be the default
version. Upon installation, Java 1.5.0_7 sets itself as the
default so this is usually not a problem.
If you have changed the default you can reset it or you may
