Oracle And Apple Agree On OpenJDK: A Java Port For Mac OS X
By on November 12th, 2010

Oracle and Apple have finally agreed on a stable port of Java for the Mac OS X that will be based on the OpenJDK project and will be built with help from both Apple and Oracle. The port includes  features like,

a 32 64-bit HotSpot-based Java virtual machine, class libraries, a networking stack and the foundation for a new graphical client.

Following this, OpenJDK will make this port Open-Source to the public. It can work wonders with both Apple and Oracle supporting this move. While Apple is offering the Java SE 6, Oracle is at Java SE 7.

Just last month, Apple App Store called Java a “deprecated” technology and now, it is falling head over heels for the same Java technology. This attitude of Apple is so bothering because it lies to its users..

Apple app store and the quality check is just a facade. stupid torchlights and farting apps make it to the store easily and often make it t the top of the list.

Oracle’s Senior VP Hasan Rizv  announced the service, saying,

The availability of Java on Mac OS X plays a key role in the cross-platform promise  of the Java platform. The Java developer community can rest assured that the leading edge Java environment will continue to be available on Mac OS X in the future. Combined with last month’s announcement of IBM joining the OpenJDK, the  project now has the backing of three of the biggest names in software.
