Hi Folks,

I have a mac and I lately upgraded the OS to OS X El Captain version 10.11.13 and my eclipse stopped working. I was supposed to install Java 6 but without knowing properly I stalled Java 8 and I stuck now.  I already used the following command to remove the Java 1.8JDK.

sudo rm -rf jdk1.8.0_25.jdk

But when I try to install the JavaForOSX2014-001.dmg. I still doesnt let me install as it warns there is already a higher version of java that exists. Please suggest.


Regards
Kalyan.
