Apple drops Cocoa-Java

The last update of the ADC technical documentation says "Important: Features added to Cocoa in Mac OS X versions later than 10.4 will not be added to the Cocoa-Java programming interface. Therefore, you should develop Cocoa applications using Objective-C to take advantage of existing and upcoming Cocoa features.".

It says it loud and clear. If you want to develop powerful applications, you will have to forget about Java.

In theory, it was possible to develop Cocoa applications both in Objective-C or in Java, altough the performance of the Java applications was far behind the performance of those written in Objective-C. From now on, there's only one choice.
