Mathematica 6 comes with an outdated Java. Therefore, it may be 

necessary to use a newer version. A clumsy solution is to change the 

Java in the installation. However, there was a better method that worked 

before v6:

InstallJava takes an option "CommandLine" that specifies a command line 

to start Java. In version 6 this does no more work correctly. If I say:

InstallJava[CommandLine->"name of new  java"]

the old Java of mathematica is loaded, despite the option. However, if I 

prevent mathematica to find the java executable by renaming the 

corresponding folder, the correct java is now loaded.
