In project builder, changing the Target VM version to 1.3 under Java Compiler Settings doesn't make project builder use the 1.3 jdk.

Did you actually try it before you published it?

I would love to know how to actually make it happen.

    Ah, I see - I built as a "java tool" in Project Builder, so I was only interested in seeing that a suitable .jar was created. If you're a real PB fan, then you're probably trying to build an OSX application bundle so it's double-clickable.

    This works for me:
    * create a "Java AWT Application" PB project
    * drag in the source file
    * drag in
    * in Targets:Pure-Java Specific, make sure the Main-Class is "com.mac.invalidname.simpleqtplayer.SimpleQTPlayer"
    * under "Target VM Version", select 1.3.* (not 1.3+). This will lock the executable into 1.3 and won't use 1.4 even if it's there.

    I had a little trouble with the classpath. If you do too, look inside the created double clickable (under "build", do ctrl-click for "show package contents") and look under Contents/Resources/Java to verify the name of the jar, which should be the only classpath entry on the pure-java specific panel (probably something like $JAVAROOT/SimpleQTPlayer.jar)

    Mea culpa - I'm an emacs-and-ant guy by nature.
