Interesting MacOS Java Links

Java Integration Document.

The classes used to hook into Finder.

Testing to see if you’re running on MacOS X, so you can set up your LAF to resemble a Macintosh application.

It’s interesting that it doesn’t take a lot of work to get a working application that has the correct look and feel on MacOS X 10.5 or later. Too bad most Java developers don’t seem to put in the extra work–because if they did, they’d have something that looks exactly like every other application on the Macintosh platform instead of refugees from the UI wasteland that is Linux.

I like Java as a programming language. I like Java a lot. Too bad Java has been inundated with a metric-shitload of useless and over-engineered frameworks that really don’t add any value. (I’m looking at you, Spring…)
