Java glitch fixed in OS X 10.3.9

Software UpdateThis update will correct issues affecting some Java users following the installation of Mac OS X v10.3.9 Software Update.

For detailed information on this Update, please visit this website:

The Java Update for Mac OS X 10.3.9 addresses this issue.

After installing the automatic software update and fixing the issue, Java no longer has a Java Shared Archive (hence the optional steps above). Users that run a large number of Java applications simultaneously will see an increase in memory pressure (usually 3Mb per application), because there is no Java Shared Archive.

Note: If you have manually deleted all of the classes.jsa files prior to using Software Update, then the Java Update for Mac OS X v10.3.9 will not be presented for installation. You can still download and install it manually if desired.
