This is kind of sad. One of the things I liked about Mac OS X, was how easy it was to get a Java program running. Compared to instructions for other platforms, Macs just had to have the jar file dropped in an appropriate place and you were off and running.

So unless Apple and Oracle come to some agreement on maintaining a Mac version of the JVM, the MacOS is no longer going to be a viable development platform for Java. Too bad, it was a really nice platform to develop Java applications from. And judging from the number of people at conferences I saw using Macs, a lot of other developers agreed. I love my Mac but Java development pays the bills for me, guess I'm moving to Linux.

Actually, it seems that Apple's Java was bad for developers. Apple was always behind and there was no alternative.
There doesn't have to be an agreement between Apple and Oracle, either. Oracle can just release Java for OS X. The OpenJDK already works on OS X.
I guess Apple's own JVM doesn't really bring anything special to the table, anymore. Microsoft dropped theirs a long time ago, too.

And after thinking about it for a day, this may well be the case. In that developer tech note, there is also a good description of how third party JVM's would be handled.
If Oracle does just roll this in with the other platforms, that level of equality would be considered a good thing.

You mean Steve and Larry are not as good friends as FSJ would have us believe?

They also aren't distributing Adobe Flash anymore, but nothing stops you from installing your own copy anyway -- which is a good idea to begin with, as running an outdated copy of Flash with known security issues is a really bad idea.
My hunch is that Apple is just moving in the direction of only distributing major software that they control, and letting you get other stuff from third parties.
The last Macs to ship with non-Apple software in /Applications predated the Intel transition -- they used to come with handy stuff like Comic Life, OmniGraffle, OmniOutliner, etc. Around the time of the Intel switch, all of that third-party applications went away, so from that point of view, it isn't particularly surprising that they're now doing the same with third-party runtimes as well.

That is because Flash is made by Adobe. The Java runtime for OS X is made by Apple. So there is nowhere to download it from. Sun never did a runtime for Macs.
My guess is that Steve does this to force Oracle to make an OS X port of Java.
When it comes to comiclife and the other crapware, I have had it preinstalled on all my OS X Tiger Macs, long after the Intel transition.

On the PC side, I loathe the stuff that comes prebundled with most computers, and wasn't *that* sad to see it go on the Apple side.
That said though, the things Apple chose to distribute were actually pretty damned good -- all of Omni's applications are extremely clever, useful tools, and Comic Life is a lot of fun to use. (I actually kind of wished that Apple had bought it out & made it part of iLife or even iPhoto, but that obviously never happened.)

There are several scientific apps that relay on the java runtime (ImageJ, Sequence Analysis…): are we gonna be left in the cold?


Well, in the long run, this is good news, because Mac programs written in Java suck (actually, this is independent of the 'Mac' part), so it should hopefully encourage developers of programs like Maple and OpenOffice to convert their programs into something more stable and runnable.
So if Apple is trying to kill Java like they are trying to kill flash, I applaud them.

Given their lawsuits, it almost sounds like Oracle may wind up killing Java first.
