>From what I know and experienced. Java with mac is really not favourable with
VTK development. 
First, Java version after 1.6 (Which means 1.7+) they have remove some
rendering component that VTK is using, such that it will cause to various
error (e.g. NS Exception)

Secondly, if u want to build a UI for VTK, swing is not a good choice as
well. Since VTK panel is using AWT which will cause some random problems. Qt
is more popular for VTK UI designing, however, Jambi Qt has compatibility
issue with some Mac and the VTK Widget was not in the provided Jambi.jar.
You will have to download the source, add the Widget and compile to wrap the
whole thing to .jar again. 

Therefore, if you haven't start yet. I really don't prefer to use Java on
Mac for VTK development.
