Java 7 JDK on Mac OS X

This is one of the things that Apple should be kicked in the shin for. There is no excuse for continuing to completely foul up Java installation on Mac OS X

If you are like me, and trying to figure out how to get the Java 7 JDK installed on the latest build, here is the key:

The trick for me is probably the trick for you:
1) download the JDK from Oracle
2) run the downloaded DMG to install
3) modify your .profile or .bashrc or wherever you have it to include

export JAVA_HOME

4) make another cup of coffee and curse.
