Javaone2011 – Java on Mac and IPad

50 sec read

Java support for Mac is very important for me. I do a lot of work on a Mac laptop and a lot of our clients need Java support on the Mac. If Java wants to be taken seriously, it needs to have full support for the OS X platform and run the latest Java releases. There has only been an incomplete OpenJDK 7.0 release so far.

So the really good news at Javaone2011 has been the announcement of a Developer preview of Java 7 SE for the Mac and an EA release of JavaFX – the exciting new Desktop technology for building user interfaces. The Mac will continue to be a mainstream platform for Java.

At the end of today’s keynote, there was a demo of JavaFX running on a Windows 7 tablet and then the Galaxy tablet. Then they produced an IPad and ran the same JavaFX game. Now that is exciting! It is not clear yet how far it is from production release but if Java wants to be taken seriously on mobile devices, it has to support the market leader.

So I think Java on Mac looks more promising than it has for a long time. Do you agree?
