Jigadmin is jdk1.2 and it is quite difficult to move it to 1.1 as it is
using other features of jdk1.2, however jigadm (the old version of
jigadmin) is still bundled with Jigsaw 2.0.4.
The interface is not as smooth as jigadmin2, but enough to administer
Jigsaw. try java org.w3c.jigadm.Main instead of org.w3c.jigadmin.Main
I really hope that the mac will have a good jdk1.2 soon :/
