    Java on Mac


    Is it possible to learn Java on a Mac? I've been looking into online classes, and most require BlueJ and JDK. BlueJ will work on Mac, but JDK isn't supported. Is this Apple taking a jab at Java, while in the Objective-C corner?

    I run the Java JDK on a Mac with no problems. Where did you see that it's not supported?

    One of the central ideas behind Java is it's platform independency. It will run on anything.

    I refuse to find a link for you! If you can't use Google, you may find programming difficult
