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 you want to know about the furture of Objective-C / Cocoa just have a look at the QuickTime Movie of Steve Jobs WWDC Keynote.

Cocoa Apps are (among Java and scripted Apps) most easily to port to x86.

When you dig into Apple's devloper documentation you will also see that future version of Objective-C (or Apple's foundation framework) may also have support for garbage collection.
