When I upgrade to Mavericks, it uninstalls Java 1.6. I can install Java 7, but for some applications and development work, I still need access to Java 6. How can I reinstall Java 6 in Mavericks?

Apple docs generally recommend downloading Java directly from Oracle, but I don't see a Mac version listed on the Oracle download page for Java SE 6.

When I tried the accepted answer, I didn't see the new JDK 1.6 in /Library/Java/JavaVirtualMachines/

I had to go to search for "java", download the latest, and install that. Then the Java 1.6 Macintosh appeared.
