As I have pointed out in a previous post, Apple’s commitment to the Java platform appears to be dwindling. Apple has updated their Leopard Preview page to show some of the previously unannounced new features of the OS. What’s suspiciously missing in the features section is any mention of Java 6, or even any mention of Java at all. Contrast this to the “Advanced Technology” section of the Tiger overview page, and you’ll see a very specific mention of Java 5. I am now starting to be very concerned about the state of Java on the Mac.
