We're developing an RCP application which exports and runs without issue save for the fact that unless the legacy JDK 1.6 is installed on the mac platform, it will not launch. Running the binary from the command line opens the application without issue. I have verified that we are not explicitly setting the JVM in the Info.plist as well as the eclipse.ini file. We've also recently switched to Luna to see if this resolves the issue but unfortunately it still persists.

From my experience, if a Mac cannot find a Java installation, you will see a prompt suggesting that you need a Java SE 6 runtime in order to open the app. Click Install on that Mac dialog.

Next, grab a JVM (note, the JDK may be required... not 100% sure about that) from http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/java/javase/downloads/index.html. Download and install a JVM runtime for your machine. When the install is finished, re-launch the RCP app. Did that work?
