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".

Pretty obvious all along

This was pretty obvious all along: the docs for the actual Java Bridge (the build system used to bridge the frameworks, not the bindings resulting from them) tell that it has been deprecated for a long time. So it wasn't possible build new bindings (e.g. for your own framework) without using the deprecated stuff.
Also, this technology is not dropped, it's just not being extended any longer.

It would be interesting to look into adapting JIGS (http://www.gnustep.it/jigs/) as a replacement.
