I've recently upgraded my Mac to Snow Leopard.  Snow Leopard comes with
Java 1.6 prebuilt.  I was trying to get InterMine to build (ant build-db
in dbmodel), but I kept getting a failure to launch modern compiler
error (or Out of Memory: Heapspace error with verbose).  After running
several different ANT_OPTS, I concluded that it must be my version of


It took me a bit of searching online, and I did find instructions on how
to install Java 1.5 on Snow Leopard, and how to get Ant to take Java 1.5
over Java 1.6.  Once I did that the build ran successfully.


Have you had any experience running InterMine with Java 1.6?  I am
curious if this is an OS X issue or a Java 1.6 issue.
