Has anyone else been having problems with JOSM? I am running JOSM on Mac with the autolaunch web app JAVA file. Ever since i updated Java, it gives me warnings on startup and tons of error messages once JOSM opens. Aerial imagery is not working right either, and i can not upload once i am done editing. I hit the button to upload, but it does not do it. What should I do? JOSM is so broken it's unusable.

Hi Tommy, it would be good to know your versions of the operating system, java and josm. What is the "autolaunch web app JAVA file"? Do you mean the Java Web Start of JOSM ( )? Knowing the tons of error messages could be useful too. JOSM 9051 runs fine for me on Linux with Java 1.8.0_66.

the file is JOSM.JNLP it downloads josm from the web and launches it. I tried it again now and it is working perfectly. Idk what was going on.
