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 I remember right, Aaron Hillegass said that Cocoa-Java was just a hack and really created with the intention of helping people port over apps to NeXT then Mac OS X so you could get it on OSX then write it in Objective-C or Objective-C++. It was never meant to be used as a long term thing for any application.

As far as I can remember he's discouraged Cocoa-Java because of slower launch times & app performance, but I don't have his book right in front of me at the moment so I can't quote him exactly.
