Comment on "First Look at Cappuccino and Objective-J"

@Russell: It seems nice, but not as complete or robust as Google's implementation

I admit I haven't looked closely at Google's toolkit, but the obvious difference is that it's based on Java. The overall net effect is probably similar, but Cappuccino is based on the Cocoa design patterns and Objective-C language features.

Google's toolkit is probably a lot easier to integrate into existing web apps (or web pages?), and has a lower learning curve for those who already know how to write client-side web apps. Even if they know JavaScript, though, I think many existing Mac programmers would probably prefer the Cocoa-based solution. I do, at least.
