[MBS] JDBC and MAS

Hi Christian,

I'm thinking about what I need to do for MAS. This morning I realized that I still use JDBC for connecting to MySQL. This is optional and most likely not used much. Do you think Apple will barf about this?

Mit freundlichen Grüßen/Regards

I'm not a lawyer, but the rule is quite clear:

2.24 Apps that use deprecated or optionally installed technologies (e.g., Java, Rosetta) will be rejected

What?? Can you clarify what you mean, because that statement literally read is not true.

Java is indeed installed on all Mac OS X computers, including those being sold now and in the future.

Rumors say developer-only pre-releases of Lion (Mac OS X 10.7) are without Java. Even if that were true, it would be temporary. Apple has already committed to providing Java 6 on Lion. For future versions of Java (7, 8, etc.) Apple gave source code and responsibility to the OpenJDK project, which the company has joined as an active member.

http://www.computerworld.com/s/article/9196324/Apple_joins_Oracle_s_OpenJDK_project

As an Apple-managed development tool, Java is now deprecated. Java is still actively developed, supported, and improved by Apple. But 'deprecated' means Java is not allowed in new apps in the Mac App Store. But exactly what "not allowed" means is not clear. For example, there are rumors of people bundling an entire Java Virtual Machine (rather than using the one built into Mac OS X) inside their App Store app. I don't know if a non-Java app accessing the Mac's Java Virtual Machine for a JDBC driver would be rejected or not.
