Apple not deprecating Java, after all
Just published: Oracle and Apple announced joint efforts for OpenJDK 7. So, step by step, Oracle is strongly consolidating the OpenJDK, even resolving a very old problem, the relationship with Java on Mac OS X. These are excellent news. As you can read in the blog, there are no certain things about times (when OpenJDK 7 will be ready)... we have to wait for that.
