    With the Mac Java stuff being handled by Oracle when Lion is released, what will be the best way to get a JDK to continue Java development under the Mac O/S?

    I tried looking for info at Oracle's web site and I tried searching the forum, but couldn't find an answer.

    Apple will provide a J2SE 6 JRE and JDK for Lion just as they did for Snow Leopard. Oracle/OpenJDK will step in with J2SE 7 onwards.

    Quote from the press release.

    Sounds good. Will I need to do anything special tomorrow after I upgrade to Lion so I can keep on compiling Java code?

    Well, I did an upgrade to Lion and started NetBeans which uses Java and it said it could not find Java. In the pop-up it gave you have the option of going to Software Update to download Java for Lion and that's what I did and NetBeans starts normally now!
