Sadly, the latest Java update from Apple breaks my development environment!

Launching a GWT app in the SpringSource Tool Suite crashes the JVM with an exit value of 138...

I don't seem to be able to replicate this problem with any other Java programs, but I recommend doing a full system backup before installing the update - there is no way of removing the update once it is installed!
