I have a little Java app I wrote a while back to handle some basic
calculations/die rolls/etc. for an RPG. If you're interested in it, I
could send it your way, although it's mostly used for a home brew RPG
ruleset that none of you are probably familiar with.

Anyway, it worked fine on Windows (where I wrote it originally before
switching and becoming much happier, thank you very much :P), OS X 10.1
and 10.2. However, it appears that something's amiss with the Java on
Panther. When I double click the jar file to load it up, it just hangs.
Same thing happens if I run the applet manually from the terminal.

Anyone know if there are any known Panther/Java issues and how to fix
them or work around then?

Thanks.

I've run a wide variaty of (standalone) Java applications in Panther,
all without any issues.

This is an applet or an application?

Might be appropriate:

http://docs.info.apple.com/article.html?artnum=120242

Looks like some of the paths to the new Java executables were not
replaced on an upgrade install.
