    It's about *&$%#@ time! I've looked over some of the features of Apple's Java 1.4.1 Update, and I must say I'm impressed. Hopefully, this means that Apple will continue to provide full and timely Java support for OS X from now on.

    GO APPLE!!!

    Sweet!!! Downloading now... I took a java class, and it is a pretty cool language if you want to write something to run on multiple platforms. Thanks Apple

    Although this is the most appropriate forum for this thread. To quote arn's rules for this forum:

    If you look at the kind of threads in this forum and the kinds posted in the "software discussion" forum this thread should be here.

    edit: arn has closed the other thread.

    no Aqua for NetBeans?

    I went and got NetBeans and i can't get it to use the aqua look and feel. I used the .dmg binary and the tar.gz one. Niether let me set teh aqua UI. Has anyone gotten it to work?

    Hrm, maybe I should try to learn Java again.....anybody got some good links to Java tutorials?

    Another thing I noticed, this update doesn't require OS 10.2.4....but that doesn't matter since I can't upgrade right now (56k modem makes upgrading the system kinda hard)

    I hope borland ships their Jbuilder soon

    I really want JBuilder 8 for Mac to come, the 7 doesn't work with Java 1.4.1, I hope they update it soon.
  13. macrumors 6502

    I got it right when it came out. I refreshed the software update, and nothing was there, and five seconds later, it opened software update.

    Does anyone know how this will affect LimeWire and other Java apps? using quartz extreme and aqua more should make it a little bit less of a resource hog...I hope

    I'm shocked. I just went to http://www.eweek.com, which is routine for me and it was almost unusably slow after the Java update. In fact, I tried it with:

    Camino 0.7
    Safari v60
    Internet Explorer 5.2.2 and
    Mozilla 1.2.1

    I had to force-quit Mozilla because it stopped working. I guess there will be a plug-in update at some point.

    Default look-and-feel is much different. For examples, see my thread in Distributed computing: http://forums.macrumors.com/showthread.php?s=&threadid=21248

    ESPN Fantasy baseball still does not work, oh well, perhaps when the full release of Safari and Camino arrive, it will be fixed.

    On left side of the page look under the Documentation heading for "Tutorials"

    Safari beta v.64 works great at eweek for me.
  20. macrumors 65816


    Hooray for AppleScript support! This will lead to great things.

    Forget JBuilder, use Eclipse
  22. macrumors regular

    Well, after installing it I find the Limewire answer to be yes and no. Limewire itself feels a bit zippier, entered keywords seem to be accepted a bit faster, but it still messes up the display of other apps if it's visible behind them.

  23. macrumors newbie

    Sorry to kill your illusions, but LimeWire doesn't work at all with java 1.4.1.
    But 1.3.1 is still installed (look in /System/Library/Frameworks/JavaVM.framework/Versions/) and programs can choose which version they want to use.

    They will probably update LimeWire soon, but right now LimeWire depends on lots of the old carbon-apple specials in 1.3.1.

    Re: Re: I hope borland ships their Jbuilder soon

    I'll 2nd that! Eclipse is awesome!
  25. macrumors 6502


    Uh, Bousozoku, I tried eweek.com, and it loads fine for me. Furthermore, I took a look at the page source, and I don't believe there is any Java involved (they use ASP's - boo). There is javascript, but that is no relation to Java.

    Hey guys, I use Eclipse on Windows at work, but there is no Os X version. Furthermore, I was under the impression that they use their own binary UI classes, not Swing, so I fail to see how it could even run under X11 on OS X.

    If I'm wrong, I'll be happy to be set straight.
