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 couldn't care less one way or the other. I never use Java to write Mac code. It's just too cumbersome compared to Objective C. I'm relieved they decided to continue with Objective C rather than try to focus on Java. It's Objective C's dynamic features that make Mac OS X possible.

I feel 1000 x more productive with Objective C than I do with Java.
