Apple Says Not to Use Java for Writing Cocoa Apps

From the latest revision of Apple’s Cocoa-Java Integration Guide:

Important: Features added to Cocoa in Mac OS X versions later than 10.4 will not be added to the Cocoa-Java programming interface. Therefore, you should develop Cocoa applications using Objective-C to take advantage of existing and upcoming Cocoa features.

As far as I can tell, the whole idea of writing Cocoa apps using Java never really took off, so I don’t think this will be that big a deal.
