i have been having some issues with modified java applications black-screening on my mac. i was informed this is because the class files i was adding were compiled in java 6 well i downloaded openjdk7-macppc-2009-12-16-b4.tar.bz2 AKA soylatte and extracted the binaries. now i know almost nothing about macs i am mostly a windows tech but i just happen to own an ibook because it is useful for certain things. so any way there is a java settings app in utilities that allows you to specify the default version of java to be used but i dont know how to make soylatte appear in that list :)

upgrading the os is not an option due to some hardware issues

purchasing a new apple is out of my price-range and really not worth it for the few things i use if for

but it is an ibook G4 running osx 10.4.X

Note: I don't own a Mac.
Go to /System/Library/Frameworks/JavaVM.framework/Versions/ and make a symlink from the soylatte directory to "CurrentJDK".

Open a terminal, then do:
cd /System/Library/Frameworks/JavaVM.framework/Versions/
sudo mv CurrentJDK CurrentJDK.bak
sudo ln -fs [java directory here] CurrentJDK
