Using Java 6 with RubyMine on OS X

26 May 2009

What do you need?

Next, open RubyMine’s Info.plist:

mate /Applications/RubyMine\ 1.0.5.app/Contents/Info.plist

Find the line with value 1.5* en change it to 1.6*.

Start RubyMine and check the ‘about’. It should look something like this:

RubyMine about screen

Enjoy. It does feel snappier on my side.

On a sidenote: You can set the default Java version via the ‘Java Preferences’ app.
