Currently, Frame2 does not work on Macs. This, of course, is due to the fact that there is no (easily) available Java 6 implementation for MacOS. I’ve been trying to decide if this is an issue or not.
Reasons why it might be an issue:
- I use a Mac for most of development, and I hate having to drop into an emulator to work on Frame2
- I really would like Frame2 to run on the Mac, if just for completeness.
Reasons why it probably doesn’t matter:
- Who really runs Java webapps on Macs? Tomcat on Windows or Linux is OK, but it just feels dirty to me on the Mac.
Hopefully, there will be a version of Java 6 available for the Mac soon. At that point, I’ll probably make the necessary updates to make everything work. Until then, if you’re writing a web app and using a Mac – go with Rails.
