This was originally written in Objective-C but was ported to Java with version 5. Newer versions are now free and included with the XCode developer tools. Programmers wanting to use Java on OS X have two choices. They can stick to Pure JavaTM and not make use of any of the Apple-specific code. This is an obvious solution for porting code from other platforms.

Carbon is now only recommended when porting applications from Mac OS 9 or earlier, and there are very few of these still around that are worth porting but haven’t been. The Apple documentation sometimes uses the term “Carbon” to describe any C APIs on OS X and not just those that are part of the Carbon framework.
