Yes, QTJava is basically the only game in town, but it's still eminently usable and good enough to ship in my opinion, as long as
you're careful and don't mind tinkering a bit (eg. using JNI if you need access to newer APIs).
Amen to that. Like everyone else who's posted I've found Apple's stance towards QT4J very frustrating. On the other hand, I can use it to talk to a number of video-capture boards and it works mostly well-enough for other video related work and it's really the ONLY game in town. At least they throw some resources at it once in a while. AFAIK, no other company is putting even a modicum of effort in 'free' Java multimedia API's.
Java's not going to go away.
Definitely not, although Apple sure did drop the Java-ball with Leopard. Between their secrecy around Java 6, and the issues the heavily modified Java 5 (e.g. new 2D renderer, 64-bit support) in Leopard is causing* I'm very concerned about Apple's commitment to Java. I'm optimistic that they'll release a stable Java 6 VM in the next few weeks; hopefully that's not wishful thinking.
* I haven't moved to Leopard yet, but my co-developers who have are having a lot of serious problems with Java on Leopard.
