Galileo Packages Cocoa 64 Bit [message #11569] Thu, 25 June 2009 08:02 Go to next message

Hi,

i am a RCP developer working on Mac. One of the most awaited features
for Mac Developers is the SWT Cocoa port as part of the Galileo Release.
The problem is that anyone wanting to use Java 6 and SWT (as i do) MUST
use the 64 Bit Cocoa Port.
I was very diappointed that the package (Modeling) i downloaded did not
contain the 64 Bit Version of the SWT Cocoa Port. And worse, the
download site does not even state the fact that the dowbnload is only
suitable for 32 Bit Java anywhere. I would like to vote that a 64 Bit
Mac Release is considered to be the "standard" download for Mac.

Even Mac Users like to use at least a semi-recent JDK :-)

gr.

Markus

Markus,
The story is a bit fuzzy on why there are no 64-bit OS X package builds.
I suggest you bring it up on the epp-dev mailing list
(https://dev.eclipse.org/mailman/listinfo/epp-dev) where I asked a few
weeks ago. Here's the "fuzzy" answer that was given then:
http://dev.eclipse.org/mhonarc/lists/epp-dev/msg00666.html (I was not
very satisfied with that answer, but was too busy with other things to
pursue the discussion further).

Also perhaps enter a Bugzilla about it against the EPP project (please
post the bug number or URL here if you do).
