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 don't own a Mac, but the last time I used one I installed jEdit (a swing app) on it and noticed that the interface looked more like a Mac application rather than the Swing Metal look. Is this what they are going to stop doing?

That wasn't Cocoa, Java's Cocoa bridge require(s/d) a Mac. The Mac look is just a look for that.

They're using Swing. That's why it looks like that
