I'm a mac user and the Java 1.6 requirement of the splitter caused me
to look into this a bit. After a lot of messing around, including with
Soylatte (which worked, BTW), I reached the conclusion that on MacOS
Leopard at least, 1.6 is already available and many Mac users will
already have it sitting silently on their machines:


The Java preferences application will allow you to switch which
version of Java is used by default.

Or rather, that's how it is for me. Others can perhaps provide better info.
