- Apple deprecates Java
- OpenJDK 7 appears ported to Mac OS X already
- New Mac AppStore guidelines are not to use deprecated or optionally installed technologies. That would
seem to include Air.
- Will we see a move to Delphi? Delphi starts its beta programme of native Mac support in November .
- What about MonoMac? (which compiles to native Mac)
- Dmitry Jemerov (Jetbrains): Right now we know as much as anyone else about this issue. We don’t plan to stop our OSX-specific Java development. Whatever the final outcome of this issue (Apple reverting its decision like it reverted its changes to the iOS developer agreement, Apple open-sourcing its Java implementation, Oracle providing its own port of Java for MacOS X, or SoyLatte becoming the de-facto standard), we’re certain that some version of Java on MacOS X will remain available. And if it means that we’ll have to do a lot of additional work to adapt our platform to the new Java implementation, well, then we’ll do it, as we don’t seem to have much choice in this regard.
