Mac OS X Lion vs JavaWS

After upgrading Java with Java for OS X 2013-0002 suddenly I lost ability to manage our Cisco ASA Firewall via ASDM.

Mrman told me, that I need to download and install two packages

JavaDeveloper for 10.7 [dropbox.com]

Apple Java Revert [dropbox.com]

After installation in fact I had working Java environment 1.6.0_35 but JavaWS still was a no go.

After googling a bit for the next error:

Can not find message file: No such file or directory

I’ve found #1 and #2.

the ultimate solution to the JavaWS canundrum is to remove  JavaWS minimum version string from the XProtect.meta.plist with

sudo /usr/libexec/PlistBuddy -c "Delete :JavaWebComponentVersionMinimum" /System/Library/CoreServices/CoreTypes.bundle/Contents/Resources/XProtect.meta.plist
