FAQ Section: Macintosh : Mac OS X
  1. Why can't I export JPEG and PNG?
  2. GIF-Export returns files with no content (0 Bytes)
  3. Why does Poseidon keep using an old JDK even though I have JDK1.5?
  4. I cannot open files - is that a bug?
  5. Why does Drag and Drop from the tree to the diagrams not work?
  6. Can I use the Eclipse Integration with Mac OS X?

    Java 5 is required to run Poseidon within Eclipse. Mac OS X 10.4.x (Tiger) ships with Java 1.4.2_07, which is the correct JDK to run Poseidon for UML in standalone mode. Java 5 is available as a manual download for Tiger, but it has not been tested yet with the Poseidon Eclipse integration.
  7. When I click on the Poseidon icon nothing happens.
