Java System Property Reference for Mac OS X

I don’t know why I keep misplacing this document, so I’m noting it here for future reference: Java System Property Reference for Mac OS X. This contains the various magic runtime system properties in Mac OS X.

The Java Development Guide for Mac OS X is also useful for how to do certain standard Mac-like things in the Java environment.

What I found was that by testing the System.getProperty(“os.name”).toLowerCase() return string to see if it contains “mac os”, then sprinkle various minor changes to make the UI align with the recommendations in the Java Development Guide above, you can build an application that looks Mac-like on a Mac platform with little effort.
