Urks... You are trying to run the java applet as a stand-alone
application. While you theoretically can do this, it is far more
convinient to use the online version at the website ;-)

JOSM is an other application not located within the subversion at
openstreetmap. Download the latest pre-compiled at
http://www.eigenheimstrasse.de/josm/josm-latest.jar or compile it yourself
using http://www.eigenheimstrasse/svn/josm.

You need at least Java 1.5 to run JOSM.

Ciao, Imi.

PS: To run the applet locally, you have to fix the runapplet.sh (which is
outdated) to include the processing-jar files from the java/lib/
subdirectory and then pass "--user=<username> --pass=<password>" as
parameter. ;-)
