Mac OS X

Java 1.6 is unfortunately only available on 64-bit Intel Macs. For Macs that can have Java 6, you should install and enable it following the instructions below:
  1. Java 6 isn't installed by default. Java 6 is available as a simple Software Update, so if your system is up to date, Java 6 is installed, else upgrade your system. Note that Java SE 6 won't appear for users on 32-bit Intel machines (Intel Core and Intel Core Duo) even if their systems are fully up to date.
  2. Even though Java 6 is installed, Java 5 is still used by Mac OS X. You have to activate Java 6 by yourself. To do this, you need to run :
    Applications -> Utilities -> Java -> Java Preferences
    Then, you just need to change the order of Java versions to use (Java applet versions).
  3. Please check to ensure that you have the Java version 1.6 or higher at here. Note that you may need to restart your browser (close all browser windows and re-open) before verifying your installation.

As well as we are running main hiPathDB server, in Asian region, we have prepared mirror servers, for US/Canada users and for Europe users. Try both and choose the faster one.
