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".

I think it's a good decision to drop the Cocoa Java interface. Objective-C is by far the best and most enjoyable language for developing Cocoa apps. Therefore, it should be at the center of the Cocoa effort. Since people are adopting Objective-C instead of using the Cocoa-Java interface there is no reason for Apple to waste a lot of engineering effort on the Cocoa-java bridge. However, it's true that having a highly dynamic scripting layer available in Cocoa would be great. The most obvious choice would be to add the F-Script

environment to Cocoa.
