It looked like most of the java commands default link to the Apple Java 6 versions.

I set up this in my bash profile
jdkhome=`/usr/libexec/java_home -v 1.7`
alias jrunscript7=$jdkhome/bin/jrunscript

I'm a little leery of using JAVA_HOME having a number of times seen people have problems they couldn't figure out that turned out to be because they JAVA_HOME set and forgot about it.

jrunscript7 -q
Language ECMAScript 1.8 implemention "Mozilla Rhino" 1.7 release 3 PRERELEASE

But it still doesn't work. I guess I'd better figure out the resources configuration file Alan Bateman mentioned.
