Java on the iPhone
March 9, 2008 Leave a comment
It looks like Sun wants to put Java on the iPhone.My initial reaction was “why”. From what I can tell, the SDK is pretty good, though it does require you to learn Objective-C (in itself not a bad thing, the people who use it generally love it), and adding Java would add another layer of stuff between the application and the device itself when you really need all the performance you can get.
Upon more consideration I thought “why not”, it will be interesting to see how well (or how poorly) Java works on the iPhone.
