Re: [visad] visad with java 1.6

Hi James,

Sorry to hear about the problems with Java 1.6. Is there any way you could
isolate the problem down to a small example? If so, I can do some testing
with Java 1.6 on my system and see whether I can duplicate the problem, or
maybe even find some kind of fix or workaround.

Thanks,
Curtis
