Hi,
I am new to mac. I am on OSX 10.6.2 and java version that came along with it is '1.6.0_17'. My company code is being built on Java 1.5.0_16. So i need to download that version of Java.
How/where can I download that version of java? I searched Apple support page with no luck. Also, I checked under Versions folder for installed versions of Java
ls -l /System/Library/Frameworks/JavaVM.framework/Versions and all that shows me is that 1.6.0 is a proper folder, everything else 1.3, 1.4, 1.5 are all symlinks to 1.6.0. I think that once I get the java jdk downloaded, I can point the symlink CurrentJDK to that java version and I should be good.
Please advice on where I can find older versions of java.
Thanks in advance.

Is your Mac up to date with the latest version of the Mac operating system (macOS or OS X)? Is it using the version required by some other product that you want to use with your Mac? Which versions are earlier (older) or later (newer, more recent)? To find out, learn which version is installed now.

If your macOS isn't up to date, you may be able to update to a later version.

Which macOS version is installed?

From the Apple menu  in the corner of your screen, choose About This Mac. You should see the macOS name, such as macOS Mojave, followed by its version number. If you need to know the build number as well, click the version number to see it.
