Oh nice! That clears up a lot. Strangely I found what I needed, it was an update from apple to upgrade J2SE 6, and install J2SE 1.6, but strangely in the java preferences app, it still lists the ancient 1.4.xx version and doesn't list the 1.6.xx version. So strange. I think I might try to see why its not showing up. I had installed it yesterday, and its still not showing and I know I rebooted just in case.

Anyway thanks that helps a lot. :)

Java "X" is the 1."X".xx family - in other words Java 6 is the 1.6.xx
family, Java 5 is 1.5.xx and Java 4 is 1.4.xx John
