Apple Deprecates Their JVM

Mortimer.CA writes “In some recent release notes Apple has deprecated their JVM: “As of the release of Java for Mac OS X 10.6 Update 3, the version of Java that is ported by Apple, and that ships with Mac OS X, is deprecated.” In the past Sun (now Oracle) has always let Apple do this: “Apple Computer supplies their own version of Java. Use the Software Update feature (available on the Apple menu) to check that you have the most up-to-date version of Java for your Mac.” I wonder how much heads-up Oracle was given for this change, and if the Java team has any code ready to go, or whether they’ll have to ramp up porting for Mac OS 10.7 (aka “Lion”).”
