Creating a link for launching Jalview in OSX

Thank you to everyone who wrote letters of support last year for our application to the BBSRC, we should hear the outcome in the next couple of months.

We are now applying to the Wellcome Trust to renew funding to support Jalview's use in biomedical sequence analysis, including interpretation of genomic variation and long read RNA data (e.g. Nanopore) at the protein coding level. If you would like Jalview to continue to develop and be supported then please take a few minutes to write us a support letter saying how you use Jalview in your research/teaching.

Write as a PDF including your institution's heading and send to: by Friday 22nd March 2019.

Thank you!

1. In System Preferences, launch Java which opens Java Control Panel.
2. On the "General" pane, click "View..." which opens Java Cache Viewer
3. Select Jalview
4. Click icon for creating a shortcut.  A Mac alias is installed on your Desktop.  Drag it to /Applications or wherever you want it.
5. Double-click the Jalview alias file to launch.

The first time it will download all of the jalview objects into cache again. Subsequent launches will only check for any updates, then launch.
Note: This assumes you have Oracle Java 1.7 installed and have already run and downloaded jalview.
