Installing and running the Excentis DOCSIS Config File Editor on Mac OS should work fine with a default java installation.

If for some reason the installer doesn't find a valid java installation or running the app fails, here's a workaround:

1. Download and install a recent JDK (JDK, not JRE!!) from oracle (e.g.  This should already enable the installer to work.

2. If the application still doesn't run, Add

To the JVM capabilities defined in the Info.plist file of the /Library/Java/JavaVirtualMachines/<jdk_path>/Contents directory

3. There can still be a problem with a dylib not found (issue with jdk1.8 library). The solution is mentioned in the comments of the same webpage:

sudo mkdir -p /Library/Java/JavaVirtualMachines/<jdk_path>/Contents/Home/bundle/Libraries
sudo ln -s /Library/Java/JavaVirtualMachines/<jdk_path>/Contents/Home/jre/lib/server/libjvm.dylib /Library/Java/JavaVirtualMachines/<jdk_path>/Contents/Home/bundle/Libraries/libserver.dylib
