No more editing of any files, all the user has to do to enable the java backend (assuming the jar file is present and added to the path via javaaddpath) is to type from the matlab command prompt setpref ( 'SNCTOOLS', 'USE_JAVA', true ) A lot changed in 2.4.0, and some user code might break as a result. If that's the case, let me know about it.
