Oracle’s Java 8 and Mac OS X 10.7.x | Der Flounder
At some point Oracle stopped supporting Java 8 on OSX 10.7 Lion. Testing the latest fails with some missing symbols from the Java dylib/awt. It’d be nice to know exactly when this cutoff occurred.

10.6: Add NFS Mounts using Disk Utility - Mac OS X Hints
This is getting me soooo close. Turns out the 'nobrowse' command is passed to these automounts by default, so they don't show up in Finder, but I want that. Evidence suggests that '-o browse' might work ordinarily, but when I restart automountd (see http://apple.stackexchange.com/questions/20050/how-to-reload-autofs-on-lion-without-restarting) I get this error:
Assertion failed: (strlcat((mntops_out), (","), (optlen)) < (optlen)), function process_fstab_mntopts, file /SourceCache/autofs/autofs-207.1/automountlib/ns_fstab.c, line 171.


Solution at http://www.opensource.apple.com/source/autofs/autofs-207.1/automountlib/ns_fstab.c - yes, those "Advanced Mount Parameters" are passed as comma-separated options to '-o'. Unsure whether '-o browse,nobrowse' will cancel and blow up the computer or not.

NB: This capability was removed from Disk Utility in Mountain Lion (10.8). There's a third party (non-free) utility called NFSManager (http://www.bresink.com/osx/NFSManager.html) which can fill the gap, or you can manually create these mount points using Directory Services utilities (see https://plus.google.com/100089265708813302694/posts/eJ5EevKA2y3)
