No I haven't. I feel the 1.3 JDK (any of them) would probably work OK
as they've been around for a while. The 1.4 version mentions in the
Makefile that you might have to run it as root.

I went for the 1.4 though because of the regexp support. I'm not going
to be using it for anything serious, I'm going away for a couple of
months & I want to play around in the evenings with it.

You can't get away without using PHP?
