Mac OS X javax.crypto

There is some talk on the Internet how Apple left out the JCE in java 5.0 and at least in eclipse you are getting some strange errors that javax.crypto is missing. I was able to fix that by asking eclipse to use in the Build Path as Library instead of "JVM 1.5.0" "JVM 1.5". I don't know why this is so but it fixes the problem. My ant script compiled fine and the stuff runs.

I also looked into BouncyCastle which has an alternative JCE but that didn't work for me. (On another note I was really excitedt that BouncyCastle now has crypto algorithms based on elleiptic curves - you guys rock!)
