I'm not an apologist of Apple's tactics, but this time they are kind of justified by Oracle's incompetence.

Disabling people's software should only be done by consent of the user. Remotely crippling someone's machine under the guise of a security patch makes people less likely to install security patches in future (putting them at more risk), and means that your platform isn't suitable for running in an environment where being able to use your company's application today is important.
