Hi all,

I'm currently using Mac OS X 10.3 (phanter) and need to use java 1.5 for software development. Is there anyone have developed java SDK 1.5 for mac os x phanter?

I wish to use it without upgrading mac os x into 10.4 (tiger).

J2SE 5.0 (aka 1.5) isn't available for any version of Mac OS X prior to 10.4, and isn't going to be. Apple doesn't go out of its way to back-port stuff to versions of the OS it isn't selling anymore.

Someone posted a script to the java-dev list that unpacks J2SE 5.0 on Panther, but there's a lot of reported breakage (Swing, for example).
