Oracle and Apple Announce OpenJDK Project for Mac OS X

Fans of Mac OS X and Java will be very happy to hear that Apple and Oracle are teaming up to collaborate on Java support for this popular operating system.  Key excerpts from the release:

"Apple will contribute most of the key components, tools and technology required for a Java SE 7 implementation on Mac OS X, including a 32-bit and 64-bit HotSpot-based Java virtual machine, class libraries, a networking stack and the foundation for a new graphical client. OpenJDK will make Apple's Java technology available to open source developers so they can access and contribute to the effort. "

"Apple also confirmed that Java SE 6 will continue to be available from Apple for Mac OS X Snow LeopardĀ® and the upcoming release of Mac OS X Lion. Java SE 7 and future versions of Java for Mac OS X will be available from Oracle."
