Installing Cytoscape 3.2 on Mac OSX Snow Leopard (10.6.8)

Cytoscape 3.2 requires Java 7 to run. Unfortunately Java 7 is not officially available for Snow Leopard (10.6.8). We found a version of Java 7 (Update 25) that works with Mac OS X 10.6.8. Note, later versions of Java 7 do not work on OS X 10.6.8 even if you manage to install them.

Install Java 7

MacPro:~$java -version

java version "1.7.0_25"
Java(TM) SE Runtime Environment (build 1.7.0_25-b15)
Java HotSpot(TM) 64-Bit Server VM (build 23.25-b01, mixed mode)

Download Cytoscape 3.2
