Java bridge

  • I've seen the Cocoa Java bridge is being deprecated.

    Is the whole Java bridge being deprecated? Or only most of it? Ie, is it still
    going to be possible to mix Obj-C and Java?

    For example, is it going to be still possible to use Java libraries in Obj-C
    Cocoa applications?

    (for example, is it going to be possible to use EOF within Cocoa...?)

    Yes.

    Recommended approach is to use JNI, AFAIK.

    Were you still doing that? Blimey.

  • Someone should create a new Java-Objective-C bridge using modern Java
    reflection capabilities. It could be better technically than Apple's
    Cocoa-Java bridge and open-source as well.

    Well, not an option for database development...

    I've made experiments with both JDBC and EOF/Java, and both ways were working
    fine.

    I never started a complete project because of the lack of bindings. I'm now to
    lazy to use table data sources :-). I had some ideas to add this myself
    somewhat, but always hoped Apple could do it in a much better and generic way
    than me.
