> Hi All,  which is the java version with which  protege 3.2.1 (build

Java 1.5.

First of all, the mac must be running Tiger (OS x version 10.4) or  
better.  Once this is true you need to ensure that the Mac has Java  
1.5 installed   To check the version, open a command line window and  
type "/usr/bin/java -version".  There are three possibilities:

1. you get something like "command not found".  Actually I am not  
sure if this is possible but if it happens it means that you need to  
install Java 1.5.

2. It will report an earlier version of Java.  In this case you need  
to install and/or configure the computer to use Java 1.5.  You can  
find infomration about getting Java 1.5 on the apple site (http://

3. It will report Java version 1.5 in which case you are using the  
right version of Java.

It does work fine on a Mac.  I use the Mac as my main development  

> PS there is no java 1.6 for protege, is there?

We don't support Java 1.6 yet because - unless you pay up to be an  
apple developer - there is no Java 1.6 for os x.  I have already  
heard some reports that Protege doesn't work properly with Java  
1.6.   We will move to Java 1.6 sometime after the apple makes java  
1.6 available for os x.
