Java Console

This window pops up now and then and usually , not knowing what I am supposed to do with it, I just close it. Today, I noticed that I can not get rid of it, so I guess its time to ask for help.

The top 3 lines are:
Java(TM) Plug-in: Version 1.4.2_12
Using JRE version 1.4.2_12 Javs HotSpot(TM) Client VM
User home directory = /Users/sonny
--------------------------------------------

I am using an eMac, if that makes a difference. How do I get into these situations and how do I react when they happen?

I see this is a debugging service for the Java Plug-in 1.4.2 developer. Appearently, there is a problem with Applets that I am using at time. Since I don't want to debug someone else's code, I guess that I can kill it.

Unfortunately, some session won't die right away. :roll:

What Internet browser are you using?

With Internet Explorer (Windows) you can open the Java console by selecting Extra / Sun Java Console. On Windows, you can disable the Java Console by going to the Windows Control Panel, double-clicking Java, and selecting the Advanced tab in the configuration window. There's an option to show or hide the Java Console there.

I don't know how this works on the Mac, but you probably have a similar option somewhere.

On Mac, go to Applications > Utilities > Java. What you see under this directory depends on what versions of Java you have installed.

For example, versions 1.3.1 and 1.4.2 each have a Plugin Settings app. When you launch this, you should see a checkbox for showing/using the Java Console (under the Basics or General tab). For Java 5, there is a J2SE subdirectory that contains a Java Preferences app. In this app, the setting is under the Advanced tab.
