Seems to me that Java will never be cross platform (from the point of view of the developer) thanks to the MacOS


Why should I have to actually buy a Mac to use the ProjectBuilder or MRJAppBuilder to create a distributable application for end users?


If that's the case, I could just write native code for that platform instead and stick with C++.


The point of developing with Java is to create a distributable (e.g. a .jar file) that will run on any platform.


If Apple was smart they would create tools for the Windows ro Linux platforms that would help developers target the Mac platform.


OR simply think of a way to make .jar files double-clickable by default.
