Mac os x and java 5



  • 1. mac G3 with System 9.1 and PCI USB card won't wake up
    I have a problem. I have a solution. I have a Mac G3 with a added PCI Card to allow USB devices to be used. I have been running System 9.0.4 for ever, and had no problems. I have several USB devices plugged in to the to PCI card, including a printer, optical mouse, external USB CD Burner (SONY), flashcard reader, etc. When I upgraded to System 9.1 from 9.0.4 I noticed a problem. More often than not, I could not get my Mac to wake from sleep. I had to reboot to get it to come back to life. I accidently discovered a work around. Seems if I turn off my Sony CD Burner with the power button on the front of it, my mac will ALWAYS wake up. I don't now why this is, but since I don't use the burner much at all, it is no problem keeping it turned off, and this solves the sleeping problem. Thought you might like to know this.
  • 2. ?? How to burn multi-session CDRW with Mac OSX?
    Is there a simple "How To" available anywhere online? I can burn a normal CD, but have no clue how to make my CDRW disks "work". I do not want to buy TOAST, can this be done?

Mac os x and java 5

I'm dealing at the moment to sell my old ibm laptop which runs under
debian und jump to mac os x. linux is a nice on desktop but not on a
laptop. one big problem is that i'm a java hacker, and it's really
necessary that java 5 is working on it as soon as possible. it's not
very easy to find detailed information about when java 5 is released
on mac os x. can anyone help me ? i know just only in the moment
there's a backport for anotation support to java 1.4 and i think a
beta version of java 5.

thanks a lot,

It's typical for new Apple releases of Java to be delayed a bit vs Sun
releases.  The same thing happened with 1.4.   If you want access to
pre-release versions of 1.5, join ADC.   Otherwise, if you really need
the new features immediately, stay with linux or solaris.

As for exactly when 1.5 will be officially released, I don't think it's
been announced.  Random guess: it will be released when Tiger is.

In article < XXXX@XXXXX.COM >,

Capitalize, dude!

That said, there are a few facts open to the public.

1.  Rumor sites have noted a Java 5.0 release as part of Tiger.  For 
example, < http://www.**--****.com/ ; and 
< http://www.**--****.com/ ;

2.  Tiger is due to ship in the "first half of 2005", which means no 
more than a few months to wait if it is part of the official release.

3.  Tiger is being seeded to developers now, so if you snag an early 
start kit or otherwise sign up as a select developer, you can get access 
to Tiger right away.

So, if the rumor sites are right, then you need either to become a 
Select member right now, or to wait until Tiger ships.

People who actually know the release schedule and the truth behind the 
rumors cannot comment, as that is forbidden by their NDA.  Referring to 
public sources is, of course, acceptable, but commenting beyond that is

it bit wired, it looks like tiger comes with tigr (codename java 5)
:-). thanks for the info, is the developer helpful or is just to
getting some pre release or beta version ?

1.Porting a Mac OS 9 to Carbon Mac OS X shared library + Java Native Interface

I have ported a Mac OS 9 shared library to Mac OS X using Codewarrior 8 and
the Carbon methodology. The library uses PowerPlant to display and handle a
dialog box that communicates with the caller application. What are the
prerequisites and steps for wrapping this library under Java Native
Interface since the caller application is
written in Java and Java itself cannot call methods directly from a native
shared library? Are there any previous attempts, expreiences? Any obstacles?
