It is really too cumbersome to go back to a 1.5 JRE to be able to use the hosted mode on mac.
I saw you marked the 2507 issue as fixed but the problem remains.

We all know why the problem occurs, JRE 6 for mac is 64 bits, but the hosted mode is not.
Thus we must step back 1.5 which is 32 bit to make the hosted mode work.

But if i have a real and usefull host side, I need 1.6 features ! 
If i retrieve the project from a svn where the project was first developped on Windows with a 1.6 JDK, I need my 
JRE 1.6 !
If i only put @override annotations with my 1.6, it will give me errors in my 1.5...
These 2 small examples are grain of sand in the multiple problems the 1.6-JRE stuff implies.

I'm sure you guys can solve this problems easily.
It works with Windows, why would'nt it work with MAC ?

I recently updated my macosx to Snow leopard
Now I'm full 64 bits for my jvm :

$ java -version
java version "1.6.0_15"
Java(TM) SE Runtime Environment (build 1.6.0_15-b03-219)
Java HotSpot(TM) 64-Bit Server VM (build 14.1-b02-90, mixed mode)

No hosted mode possible....

Snow Leopard comes with both 32-bit and 64-bit JDK6. You can modify the default JDK in

have to install a jdk5 before, but yes, you're right.
