Overview

As you begin developing for Mac OS X, you'll face major changes, lots of difficult decisions, and also some terrific opportunities. The Mac OS X Developer's Guide aims to do more than help you make the transition painlessly: It's dedicated to helping you capitalize on these opportunities and positively thrive in this new environment.

Inside is the background you need to get started, the instruction and examples you need to move forward, and the expert advice you need to solve your toughest programming challenges. At a stage where others may struggle to get up to speed, you can work more efficiently while building more powerful, more usable, more robust applications. That's the beauty of Mac OS X, and of the Mac OS X Developer's Guide.

Incisive coverage that will help you:
* Understand Mac OS X, including how it works, its UNIX roots, and how best to develop for it.
* Develop applications using both the Cocoa and Carbon frameworks.
* Optimize your Carbon application with Carbon events and use direct dispatch in Carbon and Cocoa to make your applications more efficient.
* Write Mac OS X programs using C, C++, Java, and Objective-C (includes extensive example code).
* Build applications that take full advantage of all of Aqua's features.
* Port existing applications to Mac OS X.
* Create new applications that run effectively on both Mac OS 9 and Mac OS X.
* Master critical development skills, including prototyping, managing menus, writing and using services, working with events, manipulating files, designing interfaces, and building reusable components.
* Get around in the latest versions of Project Builder and InterfaceBuilder.

Audience: Apple Macintosh OS Developers.
