Java runs fine on Snow Leopard

Back in February I wrote a quick article that expressed my hope that Java would work properly on Snow Leopard.

After Snow Leopard was released a little while ago, my site hits skyrocketed to unprecedented levels, all from people looking for information about Java on SL. I can only assume they are all wondering if they are going to have any trouble when upgrading.

Let me assure you that in terms of Java, I have had no trouble on SL!

Just as an FYI, java -version returns:
java version
Java(TM) SE Runtime Environment (build 1.6.0_15-b03-219)
Java HotSpot(TM) 64-Bit Server VM (build 14.1-b02-90, mixed mode)
... and its working just fine.

However, the pure volume of hits against my own unknown blog should also be an indicator to Apple that Java is not dead and gone as Mr. Jobs has said.
