Here is the reason I am asking, and maybe someone could shed some light on this as well. I have been using Zend Studio Client 4.0.2 on FreeBSD 6.0-SECURITY for quite some time. I updated my ports and packages (which Zend is not) the other day and it hasn't worked since. So, if I wanted to try running Zend with the jdk15 port, how would I specify that I wanted to use the 1.5 version of the jdk before firing off the process? I wouldn't think that making the change in my make.conf file would do this, would it? Thanks in advance!
