Use a free third-party Java tool to truly compress PDFs
Authored by: RedFred on Jan 18, '10 01:01:21PM
don't put the jar in /System/Library/Frameworks/JavaVM.framework/Versions/1.6.0/Home/lib/ext
From Apple's documentation.
In Mac OS X, put your extensions in /Library/Java/Extensions/. Java automatically looks in this directory as it is starting up the Java Virtual Machine.

Putting extensions in /Library/Java/Extensions/ loads those extensions for every user on that particular computer. It is preferable to limit which users can use certain extensions by putting them in the ~/Library/Java/Extensions/ directory inside the appropriate users’ home directories. By default, that folder does not exist, so you may need to make it.

Use a free third-party Java tool to truly compress PDFs

I'm grateful for the suggestion, because this was the only method for employing Java of all mentioned in this post that actually resulted in processing of the temp file in ~/Desktop/PDF with tool.pdf.Compress. However, upon completion the fonts in the output documents all turned to jibberish. Maybe I'll go back and read the Colorsync method again.
