Since all of the files in the bundle are just plain text files/xml and a directory structure, there is no reason why you cannot build the entire bundle on any platform you choose.


In my opinion Apple has gone a long way to make java a "first class citizen". My java applications are more integrated on my Mac then they ever were on my old Windows machine and are even better than what I gained on Linux. Each platform handles applications differently so a little tweaking on your part to provide what that platform needs to get everything run smoothly is not too hard. A lot easier than porting C++ code around the different platforms.
