Lubrano Conference Room

With Java now firmly established as a popular language for Computer Science education, Mac OS X brings capabilities to the Computer Science community never before available on any platform. Put simply, Mac OS X, with its integrated Java development environment, is the best platform for developing and teaching with Java.

The unique way in which Java is integrated into the operating system brings unparalleled ease-of-development, tool integration, and performance on Mac OS X. We will discuss these benefits and explore the details behind the implementation of Java on Mac OS X, including the Aqua look-and-feel as well as the Apple-innovated shared VM technology. We'll briefly touch upon the tools that Apple and third parties provide to make Java easy to develop and use on Mac OS X.
