java jdk1.7.0_07 installed and running properly.

neither the mac-os version (pkg-installer) nor the generic-jar version starts on my MacBookPro (Retina):

"java -jar VUE.jar" yields:

Exception in thread "main" java.lang.ExceptionInInitializerError
at tufts.vue.VueResources.<clinit>(VueResources.java:194)
at tufts.vue.SearchTextField.<clinit>(SearchTextField.java:88)
at tufts.vue.VUE.<clinit>(VUE.java:175)
Caused by: java.lang.NullPointerException
at tufts.Util.<clinit>(Util.java:166)
... 3 more


I searched the forums and manually created a ".vue_2" folder in my home directory...

thx and regards

Hello,

Probably this problem was already solved. Gernot, I am using Mac OS X 10.9.1 and the VUE 3.2.2 is working fine, but I installed it using the provided installer.
Otherwise, I get the same error:

$ java -version
java version "1.7.0_45"
Java(TM) SE Runtime Environment (build 1.7.0_45-b18)
Java HotSpot(TM) 64-Bit Server VM (build 24.45-b08, mixed mode)
$

$ java -jar VUE_3.2.2.jar
Exception in thread "main" java.lang.ExceptionInInitializerError
at tufts.vue.VueResources.<clinit>(VueResources.java:194)
at tufts.vue.SearchTextField.<clinit>(SearchTextField.java:88)
at tufts.vue.VUE.<clinit>(VUE.java:175)
Caused by: java.lang.NullPointerException

I hope I'll find some time this weekend to look into the source code for further details
I'm planning this since I want to make it working with Java 7 due to Retina related rendering issues.
