There has been a lot of fuss this week about Apple’s plans to stop java development on the Mac platform. It appears that it will stop development in the next release of OS X (Codenamed Lion).
I have a Mac laptop and it is great as a development platform but it’s Java support has not been as good as it could be. We have had to write quite a lot of code to handle specific Mac issues. So I quite often end up developing in Linux using Vmware Fusion. But it is important to have Java on the Mac. Maybe Oracle will release a version? And if Apple are killing off Flash and Java for the Mac, what options does that leave for software development?
James Gosling has a vocal opinion on this. What do you think?
