Java Download Mac Yosemite

During the upgrade process to Mac OS X 10.10 Yosemite or 10.11 El Capitan, Java may be uninstalled from your system. In order to reinstall and run PDF Studio you will need to install the Java 6 Runtime again. The solution was to install JDK 8u25 for mac. The JRE is not enough to run Netbeans, so it essentially was using the old JRE which did not support retina well. Here is the link: JDK 8u25 Download. The way to test if you have the right version is by running this in the command line: java -version You should see this back.

You can upgrade to OS Yosemite on any of the following Mac models. Your Mac also needs at least 2GB of memory and 8GB of available storage space.

To find your Mac model, memory, storage space, and macOS version, choose About This Mac from the Apple menu . If your Mac isn't compatible with OS X Yosemite, the installer will let you know.
