Apple In the latest update to the technical documentation available from ADC, Apple has published this note: "Features added to Cocoa in Mac OS X versions later than 10.4 will not be added to the Cocoa-Java programming interface. Therefore, you should develop Cocoa applications using Objective-C to take advantage of existing and upcoming Cocoa features".

"If your going to use a toolkit like cocoa that ties you to the Mac platform (GNUstep aside), why use java."

Because Java is a nicer langauge to work with than Objective-C. No worries about pointer troubles, memory management or endianess issues. Also, having a choice between several languages is always a good thing.
