[mkgmap-dev] mkgmap & Unsupported major.minor version 51.0

From Nev Wedding nevwedding at gmail.com on Wed Mar 26 10:20:42 GMT 2014

After editing late in the day, I am trying to make a new map to load on my eTrex that highlights the remaining un-named ways for the next day, using mkgmap and a download of an .osm file using Josm of part of a suburb, using the following command as an initial trial.

java -jar /Applications/mkgmap-r3118/mkgmap.jar --gmapsupp --style=noname /Users/xxxx/Documents/JOSM/Save_OSM_file/nonametest.osm

and I get the following advice...

Exception in thread "main" java.lang.UnsupportedClassVersionError: uk/me/parabola/mkgmap/main/Main : Unsupported major.minor version 51.0

I assume a version incompatibility with mkgmap and my java version

java -version
java version "1.6.0_65"
Java(TM) SE Runtime Environment (build 1.6.0_65-b14-462-10M4609)
Java HotSpot(TM) 64-Bit Server VM (build 20.65-b04-462, mixed mode)

I can't run java 1.7 on this machine 

System Version:    Mac OS X 10.6.8 (10K549) Snow Leopard
Kernel Version:    Darwin 10.8.0

...belatedly found this http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Mkgmap/help/usage


You need to download the following software / tools:

    Java Runtime Environment 1.7 from http://www.java.com

Install Java Runtime Environment 1.7. Both mkgmap and splitter depend upon it.

That seems plain enough even for me now - I must have a later Java version installed and this can't be done on this machine.

** Is it likely that the developers of mkgmap will recompile a version of the program in the near future so that it runs under java 1.6?
