Steve Jobs' views were (for the ipad and iphone at least) that "Java's not worth building in. Nobody uses Java anymore. It's this big heavyweight ball and chain."
That's right Steve, no-one's using it — apart from every single Android owner, just for starters.
So, any thoughts on what Apple is up to? Is the Lion decision of a piece with the iphone/ipad OS walled garden? Are they deliberately cutting Java off as part of an anti-Android strategy? Or am I just being paranoid?
And is Steve Jobs right to call Java a "heavyweight ball and chain?" I'm still a big fan myself, but then I don't venture outside my little Java world much..."
