We've all heard the statistics - with more than 6 million software
developers worldwide, Java technology powers more than 5.5 billion
devices including mobile phones, smart cards, Blu-ray players, set-top
boxes, PCs, car navigations systems and more.
This week the Java ecosystem got even bigger.
Yesterday, Apple announced Java for Mac OS X 10.5 Update 1 adds support for Java SE 6
