I am having trouble getting a new Mac mini (OS X ver. 10.4.2) to realize it has been ordered to use Java 5. I downloaded the Java 5 package and set the preference for "Java Application Runtime Settings" within Application/Utilities/Java/J2SE 5.0/Java Preferences to J2SE 5.0. I rebooted the computer. Yet, when I type "java -version" at a command shell, it still says:
Java(TM) 2 Runtime Environment, Standard Edition (build 1.4.2_07-215)
Java HotSpot(TM) Client VM (build 1.4.2-50, mixed mode)

I have several Netbeans projects dependent on Java 5 developed under Linux and Windows XP that I need to get running quickly, and of course Netbeans is using Java 1.4 as well.

Thanks for any advice on this.
