How To Install Java on Your New Java-less macOS

OK, it’s 2021 and you got new Macs. Or maybe you just finished upgrading your macOS to Catalina or Big Sur and found there is no Java anymore. This article might help you with that.

As widely known, Oracle announced that the Oracle JDK 8 builds released after JAN 2019 will not be free for commercial use. Since OS X 10.7 Java is not (pre-)installed anymore. Well, I’m not a fan of Java myself (i stop using it after Java 1.6 i guess). But since I’m also tinkering with Android (and Kafka), I have no choice but put Java in my dev machines.

Instead using Oracle’s, I will use OpenJDK.

There are several ways to install OpenJDK to your Mac.

  1. Simply install the prebuilt OpenJDK binary.
  2. Install via homebrew
  3. Compile the source codes your self :P

Welcome Firefox v30

#CariMukaKatanya :D
Available for Mac, Windows and Android near you :)

10 Juni kemarin Mozilla mengumumkan versi terbaru Firefox v30.
Nah, apa saja yang ditawarkan oleh browser open-source berusia 10 tahun ini di versi terbarunya?

Firefox v30 for Android

Sebenarnya ga banyak sih update yang ditawarkan, dibandingkan versi 29 yang secara tampilan dah beda banget.

  • Terdapat tombol baru yang memudahkan kita untuk akses ke bookmark, social, dan history
  • GStreamer 1.0 yang akan memanjakan pengguna Linux untuk dapat mengakses video H.264 via browser seperti halnya AAC dan MP3
  • Plugin yang tidak ada di whitelist plugin Firefox atau bukan bagian dari extension browser ga akan aktif secara otomatis.
  • Buat para developer, background-blend-mode akan aktif by default dan waktu menampilkan error stack nomor kolomnya akan tampil juga.
  • Firefox 30 untuk Android menampilkan tombol Quickshare baru dan juga versi lokal baru (termasuk di dalamnya versi Indonesia, Malaysia, Latvia dan Belarusia). Loading pagenya juga mengalami perbaikan yang cukup bagus di jaringan 3G

Detil perubahan apa saja yang telah terjadi di versi ini dibandingkan sebelumnya bisa dibaca di sini. Info buat para developer terkait perubahan-perubahan di versi 30 bisa dibaca di sini.

Nah, versi berapa Firefox kalian saat ini? Ayo update ke versi 30 \^_^/

How to Create OS X 10.9 Mavericks Bootable Installer


So, Apple’s latest Mac OS X 10.9 finally released with codename Mavericks.

Like the previous 2 version (Lion 10.7 & Mountain Lion 10.8), Mavs doesnt ship on a disc. it’s available only as an installer app downloadable from the Mac App Store. The installer it self needs no bootable installation disc. But it cant stop you for having a bootable Mavericks installer, right?

It will be very useful if you want to install Mavericks on multiple Macs offline.

And one more thing, users running Snow Leopard and later will be able to nab the update for free via the App Store. No additional cost.

So, i’d like to share how to create a bootable Mavericks installer on a USB stick. It’s not that difficult actually.

  1. You have to get the latest version of Mavericks installer first. Since i’ve downloaded Mavericks today (23/10/2013) from App Store, my version should be 10.9.0. The installer size is about 5.3GB. After downloading the installer a new window will appear asking you to install. Just cancel it.
    There’ll be at least 2 ways to create the bootable installer. Using Disk Utility and the fastest one is using a new feature built into Mavericks for creating an install drive called [highlight]createinstallmedia[/highlight]. I’ll use this method here.
  2. You need to have at least 8GB USB stick. Rename it to something you like. I name my USB Mavericks. Well it’s not to rename the drive. But since we will us Terminal to type the command, I think it will be easier for you to use a simple name for the drive. Make sure your USB is properly formatted.
    If you’re not sure about that, this is the step to prepare your USB drive.

    I use my previous ML USB installer

    Open Disk Utility, select your USB drive and choose Erase tab
    Open Disk Utility, select your USB drive and choose Erase tab

    Choose format Mac OS Extended (Journaled)Give the name to your driveClick Erase
    Choose format Mac OS Extended (Journaled)
    Give the name to your drive
    Click Erase

    that's all, you'll have your USB ready
    that’s all, you’ll have your USB ready

    [highlight]Warning: This step will erase the destination drive or partition, so make sure it doesn’t contain any valuable data. [/highlight]
  3. Open Terminal, and type/copy paste this command
    sudo /Applications/Install\ OS\ X\ --volume /Volumes/Mavericks --applicationpath /Applications/Install\ OS\ X\ --nointeraction
  4. Type your your root/admin-level account password when prompted.
  5. You’ll see the progress in the Terminal window. It will displays a textual representation of a progress bar: Erasing Disk: 0%… 10%…20%… bla bla bla. Wait until everything finished.

    I go inside the installer directory, therefore the command will be a lil bit different for you
    I browse inside the installer directory, therefore the command will be a lil bit different for you
  6. Voila! You have your bootable Mavericks-install drive.
