No Cocoa, No SWT, No GUI

I just bought a brand new Apple MacBook laptop with OS X 10.5 operating system. With some disappointment, I just discovered that SWT libraries aren’t ported to Cocoa but only to Carbon framework but Carbon is not available in JRE 64 bit only JRE 32 bit, but I can’t run JRE 32 bit due to the needs of internal compiler API.

So… to have GUI in OS X you must wait people porting SWT to Cocoa, extimated time somewhere in 2009.

I hope that the widespread usage of Apple’s hardware will bring much more effort to such porting task.

The good news is that the command line version is still working 🙂
