Hi Mike,

I just read the Oracle licence for JavaSE and noticed that you are not allowed to modify the redistributable. The problem is: When you want to bundle the OpenJDK7 inside your mac app to submit to the AppStore you have to modify the JRE...stripping out PPC code....signing...and so on.

So in my opinion there is no legal way to use the new OpenJDK7 for bundled mac applications :)?

Best regards,
