|Subject:||Java vs. Objective C|
|While not wanting to instigate another round of programming language wars it should be obvious that Objective C is a problem for Apple as this language is central to development using Cocoa but have almost no followers outside the NextStep community. The realization that developers would not switch to Objective C is generally considered to be one of the reasons that Carbon was developed, to allow C and C++ coded apps to make the transition. But Apple need something with a run-time model like Objective C and Java fills this slot. So, noticing that WebObjects 5 now also has a Java interface I would say that Apple is going full steam ahead towards substituting Java for Objective C.|
