Apple and Oracle Partner for OpenJDK for Mac OS X:
“Apple and Oracle are working together to bring the OpenJDK project to Mac OS X. This will ensure the continued presence of Java on the Mac platform. The news comes on the heels of a revelation last month that Apple will no longer be providing its own line of custom Java packages, which many, us included, took to indicate the end of Java support in OS X altogether.”
Huge sigh of relief for Java developers deploying on Macs.
