Is ext_drag.h broken? - Java SE 6 to version 1.6.0_20

    May 22 2010 | 4:05 am
    Hello all,
    Can anyone compile the "pictmeter~" example found in the MAX SDK in XCode 3.2.2, 10.6.3, JSE 1.6.0_20 and successfully drop files onto the built UI-element?
    1) My max-externals utilizing ext_drag.h have stopped working. Even the pictmeter~ example doesn't want to accept a drop anymore... The max object "dropfile" still works but I can't understand why the UI objects I am creating don't work anymore.
    I tried some debugging and can't even get the method associated with "acceptsdrag_unlocked" to trigger the filetype-checking function. I get the "circle with the slash through it" instead of the "green plus sign." I even tried the generic "jdrag_matchdragrole(drag, gensym("file"), 0))" to see if it was a filetype-issue with no luck.
    **Now...I recently did the OSX software update on my 2.4 GHz MBP Core 2 Duo (Late 2007) running Snow Leopard 10.6.3 which upgrades Java SE 6 to version 1.6.0_20. I looked on Oracle/Sun website but couldn't quite make out the nature of the update beyond security issues.
    2) This leads me to my next question: As new minor revisions of Max/MSP are rolled out, would it make sense (if it is possible?) to link to the frameworks found inside the Max/MSP application rather than those provided with the SDK?
    Thanks for any help,
