To answer all those recent posts on both mailing lists regarding JGR  
on OS X 10.6 (Snow Leopard):

You need 64-bit R to run JGR, because Apple has removed 32-bit Java  
from OS X 10.6. So follow those steps:

1) Install 64-bit R from http://r.research.att.com/
   option a) install R 2.9.0 package (but choose to NOT install  
   option b) unpack the leopard tar ball for R 2.9.2 and get the GUI  
   (in fact you can do both if you wish... ;))

2) install necessary packages as follows:

3) download 64-bit JGR launcher from

Run the launcher and enjoy.


If you want to use JGR 1.7 from RForge.net, you have to install the  
packages from sources (when building JGR you must set NOAWT=1).
If you are using your own build of R, you must build everything from  
sources yourself.
