I was aware Apple was making major changes, mainly Carbon to Cocoa, but frankly, that didn't seem relevant to me as a Java developer. I wasn't completely aware of QuickTimes connection to it. I guess I should have connected the dots since I do use the QTJ API docs. > And if I have to bet on the unpredictable future direction of computer > companies, I'll take Apple and their half-way-interesting QTKit, even if > it means switching to Cocoa and Obj-C, than Sun's non-vision, > non-passion, and non-competence for multimedia, any day of the week. So I'm guessing you're not putting much stock in Sun's Java Media Component announcement. > But what about cross-platform multimedia, you might ask?

The irony for me is that I do create cross-platform *desktop* multimedia applications in Java. That's the reason I stuck with JMF for so long. My time with QTJ has been more or less, an extensive evaluation (just over a year). And I'm not really sold on Flex. But if JMC doesn't work out, write once/run anywhere will turn into can't write at all anywhere. At least for java multimedia. Anyone know of a good Objective-C tutorial? Preferably one that targets developers whose first language was Java (I know nothing of pointers). __________________________________________________ Do You Yahoo!? Tired of spam? Yahoo!
