I think the Taverna app for Mac OS includes a bundled Java 7
distribution which is probably not updated for the latest Retina

Would you be OK testing if it would help help with a newer Java?

I'm afraid you would have to install it manually.

Download from

You might need to enable the full JCE encryption or delete your
keychain from ~/Library/Application Support/Taverna* 

Then try the "Standalone" ZIP version of Taverna:

Start Terminal, try "java -version" first, then 
go to the folder where you unpacked the standalone ZIP and 
run ./taverna.sh 

If this works, then you can try to modify the Taverna.app folder and
replace its "jre" folder with a copy of the one you just installed.
