For all the businesses using and developing java based applications, it just seems shocking to block it without any warning. Just think about how much time it would take to drop everything and develop in a different language in a business world full of already tight schedules... it's just insane.

Hardly without warning: the way I read it, Apple just reverted a previous decision to re-enable Java after finding out that Oracle's patch was only partially effective.

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