Previously, we reported on some not entirely unambiguous Apple's decision with respect to the Java technology on a Mac, have caused concern in the community of programmers. Recall last month awarded the Apple version of Java for the Mac platform status of "excluded" (deprecated), as well as in programming this term refers to the undesirability of any procedure or programming language, then there are fears that Java technology will no longer be maintained in operating Mac OS X, at the same level.
But now, it seems, developers can breathe a sigh of relief - Apple does not seek to close the Java path to their computer systems. Evidence of this were made public plans for Apple and Oracle to develop a new draft version of OpenJDK, which should help to retain the support of Java technology in Mac computers at a high enough level. Note that, under the name of OpenJDK project is meant to create an entirely consistent set of Java Development Kit, consisting entirely of free and open source code.
Thus, the said agreement is meant by a provision of the Apple tools and resources needed to implement the Java SE platform 7 in Mac OS X, including such important components as class libraries, as well as 32-bit and 64-bit virtual machines based on the HotSpot. As a result of this Java technology should be ready to use open-source developers, who will continue to improve Java on the Mac. In addition, Apple emphasizes that support for Java in any case will not be missing in Mac OS X Lion, is now in the stage of development, since Java SE 6 is available for installation, and this latest operating system.
