If you were on this list, look back to the 17th of December. There was
a post from Mike Swingler, one of the engineers working on the java
runtime at Apple. He posted about setting up the streuctures inside
the "JavaVM.framework" directories that provide application support
from java to Cocoa applications. My understanding is that this is
still a work in progress.
I see a post from him about possible problems from the
DYLD_LIBRARY_PATH, though I do not know if this is the same problem.
If you cannot find the e-mails, let me know off-list and I can send
them to you.
We need to have more information about using this port on Mac OS X and
so I would encourage you to check the wiki also. (http://wikis.sun.com/display/OpenJDK/BSDPort
) And if you learn anything about how to make things work, there is
probably somewhere that information could be added to the wiki.
