When a windows/eclipse user checks out the code from svn, eclipse reports build errors as the .classpath refers to a specific mac install of java
<classpathentry kind="con" path="org.eclipse.jdt.launching.JRE_CONTAINER/org.eclipse.jdt.internal.launching.macosx.MacOSXType/JVM 1.6"/>
On windows when i change that to a more generic...
<classpathentry kind="con" path="org.eclipse.jdt.launching.JRE_CONTAINER/"/>
...everything behaves properly. I dont want to break everyones setup by commiting this change back, before I can confirm that this update will also work on macos/eclipse.
FYI: in my Eclipse setup, under Window->Preferences->Java->Installed JREs the default JRE points to a 1.6.0_24 instance.
