Mac OS X After the news that the new MacBook Airs do not ship with Flash pre-installed (which is news considering Flash has been part of Mac OS X for a very long time), we now have news that Apple is also taking what appears to be the first steps towards removing Apple's own Java runtime from Mac OS X.

Sad that Apple back stabs the java developers that have supported them over the years.

However bundled JRE with your application (OpenJDK?) seems like the way to go now, so no big loss.


Well they have been "stabbing" Java developers for, at least, 3 years now. Their distro of Java is late as usual.
And I remember that Jobs said that Macs would be the premier Java development platform...
