Found the problem ... in your console output, there are the following
>Jalview Desktop 2.7
>Build Date: 28 September 2011
>Java version: 1.5.0_19
> ppc Mac OS X 10.4.11
.. and then:
Exception in thread "Thread-6" java.lang.UnsupportedClassVersionError:
Bad version number in .class file
at java.lang.ClassLoader.defineClass1(Native Method)
Here lies the problem. Your machine does not have Java 1.6 (because
apple never released a PPC build of java 1.6), and Jalview 2.7 as
released this week isn't compatible with Java 1.5.
It's possible I can rebuild Jalview so it will run under java 1.5, but
the ideal solution would be for you to move to a newer machine that
supports Java 1.6 (nearly all intel based macs can run java 1.6), since
I suspect that java 1.5 compatibility will be even more difficult to
maintain in future Jalview releases.
Sorry about this !
ps. I'll email next week if we've managed to build Jalview 2.7 for java
1.5. Unfortunately, I can't get around to this any sooner.
