Profiling Java Apps on Mac OS X
By seapegasus on Nov 30, 2005
On the 15th of November, Apple released Java 2 SE 5.0 Release 3 (also known as J2SE 1.5.0_05). This was the biggest of the preliminaries mentioned in the FAQ for the release of a Profiler that would run on Mac OS X.
So today we asked the Profiler team (approximately), oh just by the way, how are things and stuff, and what's the estimate on this, you know, Mac support issue...? And we, like, immediately get an email back where they tell us (approximately), oh, yeah, right, the Mac support, well, you know, we needed to wait for Apple's JSE and all, and then we needed to port all thoses binaries and all, so, the next milestone will be released, at the earliest, let's see, ... tomorrow.
Wow. Now that what quick.
Okay, the NetBeans Profiler milestone 11 covers only so-called experimental Mac OS support, and of course it solely runs in the very latest J2SE 1.5.0_05, but I think that's quite okay for porting it in only half a day's time. ;-)
