Java Se 6 Runtime Download Mac 10.9

MacBased on a recent experience, I thought it would be useful to post this blog for others who might also be struggling with this particular error message.After the Mac OS X Mavericks (10.9) upgrade, I hit the following error message from Eclipse Kepler (4.3.1) 32-bit
The JVM shared library '/Library/Java/JavaVirtualMachines/jdk1.7.0_25.jdk/Contents/Home/bin/../jre/lib/server/libjvm.dylib'does not contain the JNI_CreateJavaVM symbol.
Also, there is another error message you might receive from Eclipse:
To open “” you need a Java SE 6 runtime. Would you like to install one now?
MacI read through this bug report at - and that gave me some ideas as to how to workaround my Eclipse on Mavericks issues.Easy solution, download & install the Oracle JDK 7 and make sure to use the 64-bit version of Kepler. I have had Java 7 on the machine for a while and Java 8. I have historically used the 32-bit version of Eclipse which worked great with Java 6 which was the default from the Mac OS X perspective.Here is what I think happened, Mac OS X Lion (10.7) included Apple's Java 6 JRE, with Mac OS X Mavericks (10.9) it is no longer included. The Apple Java 6 supported 32-bit & 64-bit with a command line switch, Eclipse Juno & Kepler were seemingly able to handle that scenario. Now, Java 7 comes directly from Oracle and is installed separately on my box. In order to address the 'you need a Java SE 6 runtime' specifically, I also needed to update your Info.plist in the JDK7 at /Library/Java/JavaVirtualMachines/jdk1.7.0_25.jdk/Contents/Info.plist with the following in the JVMCapabilities section:Once the changes to Info.plist have been made you will need to reboot for it to take effect.Some other settings that might be important:JAVA_HOME=/Library/Java/JavaVirtualMachines/jdk1.7.0_25.jdk/Contents/HomeAnd I do not recall making any changes to Eclipse.ini that mattered, what follows is what I have right now on my machine, provided in case there is something tweaked in your installation.EDIT: It turns out that I did need to update my eclipse.ini, eclipse was picking up a Java 8 installation that I had and I needed to force it back to Java 7 as it was causing some other problems.Eclipse.ini for the 64-bit installation of Eclipse (underneath, I did make the change recommended at It should be noted that you won't actually see something named 'gatekeeper' in the UI.Hopefully that helps, I spent plenty of time using Google looking at Bugzilla and StackOverflow entries but could not find something like this blog post that helped me address both issues (64-bit required, missing Java SE 6 runtime).
