Maybe I wrong, but I thought that Java was one of the core frameworks on
the Mac. If I remember correctly, earlier Apple stated that they were
going to make Java into one of the ways of doing Cocoa programming.

Regarding Carbon, I think they are looking for a zero carbon footprint

That aside, I think under the Mac section MacSword should be listed
first. I was surprised about BpBible, as I didn't know that could run on
