Java Development Guide for Mac OS X
The Java Platform, Standard Edition for Mac OS X provides a Java environment that is highly integrated with Mac OS X. This integration brings together the Java platform's versatility and Mac OS X's advanced technologies to offer users a wider selection of applications and developers a first-class development and deployment platform. Mac OS X version 10.6 includes both 32-bit and 64-bit versions of Java SE 6 out of the box. This opens up the entire Mac user base to Java application and applet developers, and conversely, the world of Java applications to Mac OS X users.
