Oracle and Apple Announce OpenJDK Project for Mac OS X
Wow. This morning's press
from Apple & Oracle is incredibly encouraging.
Talks with Apple on this topic have gone on for many years, it's
great to see a positive move actually happen. The two questions
that only time can answer are: will both parties actually deliver?
and how will this work with Apple's software update center? (That
had been one of the sticking points in the past: they didn't want
to have Java auto-update from some mechanism outside their software
update center, and they didn't want an outsider delivering code via
their update center).
