Java and Mac Lovers Rejoice

Hot off the press, Apple and Oracle just announced that:

Apple will contribute most of the key components, tools and technology required for a Java SE 7 implementation on Mac OS X, including a 32-bit and 64-bit HotSpot-based Java virtual machine, class libraries, a networking stack and the foundation for a new graphical client. OpenJDK will make Apple’s Java technology available to open source developers so they can access and contribute to the effort.

I am sure there will be more details later but this seems like great news.   Good work Oracle and Apple.
