Clients on MacOS and Java compatibility

Previous versions of Mac OS were shipped with Apple built and maintained JRE. But recently Apple have discontinued this bundling, and stopped pre-installing its JRE with new updates of MacOS.

Unfortunately some MacOS updates may have this JRE removed which will cripple our existing client installations. This also may cause problems during fresh installations as we discovered recently.

We are going to upgrade our client software so that it doesn't depend on this legacy JRE. Which means that we will need to migrate from Eclipse 3.7 base to the most recent one which is 4.6 as of today.

Until we are done with migration, the workaround for the time being is to manually install the legacy Apple JRE from here. This will allow logFaces client to run on the most recent MacOS versions.
