Hi. I have one question about Java on Mac OSX. After spending some hours at : http://developer.apple.com/java/ And got some questions : 1. Why Apple's version of Java SDK is smaller than Linux and Windows version ? No demo dir for example ? Is Apple implementation of Java SDK is identical to Sun implementaion (No difference at all in functionality) ? 2. There is dir called : /System/Library/Frameworks/JavaVM.framework/ This dir contatins 3 or 4 versions of Java SDK, How to specify Java SDK 5 as my default SDK ? 3. There is also a dir called : /Library/Java/Extensions/ In this dir, we put Java jars. It seems to me that Apple has changed the structure of Java SDK, is it true ? 4. I read about Application bundle in Mac OSX. It seems to me that it allow us to create executable jar files (like exe on Windows), right ? Well, it seems great if true. 5. Any good online tutorials about how to install Java SDK on Mac OSX ? I'm really sorry guys for my questions about Mac OS X, but I'm trying to collect as possible information as I can. (Please note that I'm talking about SDK not JRE) Thanks. [ May 05, 2005: Message edited by: John Todd ]

You can make executable jar files on any platform - Mac OS X included.
