Someone Please Explain This
I don’t understand this claim:
Another problem is that it only supports 64 bit applications. Bye bye applets in Safari.
I found that in this article about Java 6 on Mac.
I always assumed that Java .class files are the same regardless of platform. A .class file compiled on one system should still run on Macs, even though their VM is 64-bit. But that quotation sounds as if the .class file format is different and code must be specifically compiled in some 64-bit mode to run on Macs. What am I missing?
