Java CAPS on Mac OS X

The next version of Java Composite Application Platform Suite (Java CAPS, formerly Seebeyond ICANN) will be available for Mac OS X. While Sun will not support production use of this platform, we will ship a Mac OS X build for development, testing and demo purposes. I downloaded and installed our internal milestone 6 yesterday on my Macbook Pro and, so far so good, it seems to run as fine as the Solaris or Windows version.

As Netbeans and Glassfish are at the heart of this future version, and because they just run well on Mac OS X, it would have been surprising to not publish a Mac OS X build for Java CAPS.

Other platforms available for this M6 build are AIX, Linux, in addition of Windows and Solaris of course.

While this move won't probably drastically change the adoption rate of Java CAPS, it will make the life of many developers easier, as they will be able to use the Mac as their main development or test platform, with the exact same tool as the one used for production.

Many Sun Sales Engineers and Professional Services Engineers are using Macs as well. For us too, having a native build will avoid playing with huge virtual machines images, just for the purpose of demo.

Thumbs up guys, great job - Thanks !
