Reverting to Java 6 from Java 7 (Mac)

Asking for a friend: There is an online grading platform that apparently only runs on Java 6, but he has a mid-year 2012 MacBook Pro unibody (13") and it came with Java 7 installed. He needs to be able to enter grades at home, which means he needs Java 6. Both of us are good with technology (and searched Google for information), but the links we found often referred to computers where Java 6 was installed, and then was replaced with Java 7. Help?

Java exploits in Mac - how do I get rid of it all?

After running Avast, I discovered some infected Java files on my macbook (10.5.8). I deleted them in Avast, but how do I know if I've gotten rid of it all? Is it on my Time Machine back up? Do I need to change my passwords? Do I need to take this to a Genius Bar, or can I fix it myself? [more inside]

XCodes mysterious death

Why has XCode suddenly completely stopped working? Reinstallation has done nothing. It seemed to be working one day and then the next not at all, with no obvious changes to my system that I can think of. [more inside]

Help figure out why my applet won't run on my Mac.

Why would an applet work fine on my school's Windows computers, only to throw "java.security.AccessControlException: access denied (java.io.FilePermission filename.gif read)" when I attempt to run it on my Mac? This is using a lot of Java stuff I'm quite unfamiliar with, so be prepared to talk down to me. The thing-I-don't-understand in question is mostly something called MediaTracker, if that rings any bells. Many more details inside and upon request. [more inside]

Of Puzzle Pirates, Java and Mac OS X

I recently installed Puzzle Pirates on a brand new iMac running OS X 10.4.9 (Tiger). I'm having some odd behavior which is making most of the game unplayable. I don't expect anyone here to debug the program (I won't complain if you do), but rather I am looking for other ideas for troubleshooting strategies. Details and screencast inside. [more inside]
