It seems I have a few issues with java and versionning theses days. This time I got bitten by Java's version on Snow Leopard. Indeed whatever version you think you're using it is Java 1.6!
What got me is the JDBC api and namely the new
java.sql.Wrapper interface added in 1.6. Thank god for build boxes (running Linux ;-))
I now remember that I had to install manually Java 1.5 on my work machine, when I was in Sydney. I am now working on my laptop and forgot to do that. I couldn't remember the exact procedure but someone wrote it for me. Thanks to Ted Wise!
