I cannot start GATK on MacOS X 10.6

Dear all,

I downloaded the up to date version of GATK. I tried to run it on an Apple computer running MacOS X 10.6 with Java SE 6.0, but GATK won't run. The console shows these errors:
28/01/14 09.57.36 [0x0-0x3d03d].com.apple.JarLauncher[3730] Exception

What should I do?

Thanks

    Java 6 is the last version of Java compatible with Mac OSX 10.6.8. Are the previous version of GATK compatible with Java 6?
