Will all of the upcoming 4.0 features be available on the Mac version? (I don't remember which thread I read it in, but someone mentioned something about a Windows-only feature.)

All features in 4.0 will be available on the Mac except for the JSP WYSIWYG Editor. Don't confuse this with the JSF Visual Designer which will be available on all platforms, including Mac.

Hi Greg, thanks for the quick response.

Why isn't that feature going to be available on the non-windows platforms? Will it be in the future?

I have a feeling a lot of Java developers are leaving the Windows platform. (Just from my reading of various forums, and talking with friends.) I think it would be a mistake to start down the path of "Windows-only" features.

Thanks for listening,
-michael.

This was answered in another thread. Here is the response for Scott.

In order to get the designer built as quickly as possible with a very high degree of functionality we chose to use some of the native capabilities available on the Windows platform. That allows us to "get our feet wet" with techniques involved in building graphical WYSIWYG editors for complex languages and deliver in a reasonable timeframe. There was simply no cross-platform base we could've built on (yes, we looked at Mozilla) that gave us as great a head start. Please don't read that to imply we won't be doing a crossplatform version, only that we didn't for the first release. As always, user demand sets our priorities.
