Remove Old Versions Of Java Mac

Version
Hi,
I am new to mac. I am on OSX 10.6.2 and java version that came along with it is '1.6.0_17'. My company code is being built on Java 1.5.0_16. So i need to download that version of Java.
How/where can I download that version of java? I searched Apple support page with no luck. Also, I checked under Versions folder for installed versions of Java
ls -l /System/Library/Frameworks/JavaVM.framework/Versions and all that shows me is that 1.6.0 is a proper folder, everything else 1.3, 1.4, 1.5 are all symlinks to 1.6.0. I think that once I get the java jdk downloaded, I can point the symlink CurrentJDK to that java version and I should be good.
Please advice on where I can find older versions of java.
Thanks in advance.

The following are the system requirements for installing the JDK and the JRE on macOS:

  • Any Intel-based computer running macOS.

  • Administrator privileges.

    You cannot install Java for a single user. Installing the JDK and JRE on macOS is performed on a systemwide basis for all users. Administrator privileges are required to install the JDK and JRE on macOS.

  • When you install the JDK, it also installs the JRE. However, the system will not replace the current JRE with a lower version.

    To determine the current JRE version installed on your system, see Determining the JRE Version Installed on macOS. To install an earlier version of the JRE, you must first uninstall the current version. See Uninstalling the JRE on macOS.

  • When you install the JRE, you can install only one JRE on your system at a time. The system will not install a JRE that has an earlier version than the current version.

    To determine the current JRE version installed on your system, see Determining the JRE Version Installed on macOS. To install an earlier version of the JRE, you must first uninstall the current version. See Uninstalling the JRE on macOS.

    Note:

    Installing a JRE from Oracle will not update java -version symlinks or add java to your path. To do this, you must install the JDK.

If your Mac runs a version of OS X that’s older than 10.6, however, there aren’t any updates for you, leaving the next line of defense in the hand of virus protection apps, or disabling Java.
