Greetings! Yes, this is a Java issue. In order to run the IDV, you need to use Java 1.6. You are currently using Java 1.7. Unfortunately, Java3D does not run on Java 1.7 for the Mac yet, so we are stuck in 1.6 land until things get fixed on the Java3D project. We are hopeful that by the next release of Java (due in August), things will be resolved. At that point, we can ship a JRE with the IDV, and none of the incompatibilities with the system's version of Java will matter.
