Did you program in Java or do you just hate AWT/Swing?
The Java runtime shipping in Mac OS X 10.6 Snow Leopard, and Mac OS X 10.5 Leopard, will continue to be supported and maintained through the standard support cycles of those products.

They're not preventing anyone from releasing their JVM for OSX (Oracle will almost certainly step in to provide Java for OSX as it's in their best interest) and they're just saying that JVM apps cannot be sold on their hokey App Store, which is entirely within their rights, sane, and reasonable, especially given that the App Store will probably use Mach-O executable encryption for its "security."

When you're asking a significant premium for a fancy case and trying to convince people that you're a serious contender you really need to be up front with how long you will guarantee to support your products. Look at SGI, Sun, IBM, HP, Microsoft... they all have guaranteed support, generally for about 5 years after last ship date. Apple is a toss-up - sometimes it's one year, sometimes 3 or so - but I don't think they've ever done the standard 5.
to mean don't assume that future versions of MacOSX will contain a JVM period.Apple wrote:Developers should not rely on the Apple-supplied Java runtime being present in future versions of Mac OS X
