Mac OS X Six months ago, a certain security flaw in Java was fixed by Sun. This flaw was present in OpenJDK, GIJ, icedtea and Sun's JRE, but it got fixed in those. There's one important shipping Java implementation that still has not been fixed to remove this security flaw: Apple's Java.

I am just wondering if OpenJDK isn't better solution for Apple users then? Unless Apple's Java is tightly bound to MacOS X, or has special features, I can't see a reason why not to use up-to-date, secure solution that Linux users use.


Soylatte is affected as well on Mac OS X - but OpenJDK6 for Mac indeed is not.
