OS X 10.4 and Java 1.5

Java 1.5 doesn’t come installed on OS X 10.4, so to get it working takes a few minutes of work. Download the dmg here and install the package. This will not overwrite the Java 1.4.2 installation that comes with Tiger, but you’ll have to fix some symlinks to switch to 1.5. See here for info on how to do this.
