RESTClient 3.1 GUI Mac is Broke

When I download and run: RESTClient 3.1 GUI: Mac Package, I receive the following error message:

 

"WizTools.org RESTClient.app is damaged and can't be opened. You should move it to the Trash."

 

My Mac workstation is OS X 10.8.2 Mountain Lion

 

Will there be a fix for this application soon?

Hi,

 

I'm sorry to hear that.  I suspect that the problem is that Java is required to install/run RESTclient, and Apple made the decision to not include Java in their most recent OS (Mountain Lion).  You can try installing Java and then RESTClient.

I already have the latestt Java version "1.6.0_37" installed. I am not willing to install Java 7.x.

 

 

Hi,

 

We don't actually maintain the RESTclient software (we just link to it as a troubleshooting tool), so my best suggestion would be to download it from another source, although we really can't guarantee the software.

 

Here is a link I found (but of course, can't fully support should issues with it arise).  My apologies that the original link we provided didn't work out.

Shannon,

 

I downlaoded the REST client software from other repositories, per your suggestion. All REST client software dowloads fail to run on my Mac OS X Mountain Lion workstation.

 

Accordingly, I am abanding any further attempts to use this useless software.

 

Thanks for you help here.

 

This thread is fairly old but I just ran into this as well. I found that running the executable JAR version instead of the App at least gets around the problem. Download it here:
