Mac OS X integrates five separate application runtime environments—Carbon, Cocoa, Classic, Java, and BSD—into one seamless whole, providing developers with many options. Cocoa is an object-oriented application framework and runtime environment, a set of software components used to construct applications that run on Mac OS X. Think of Cocoa as a large set of reusable application building blocks that can be used as delivered or extended for your specific needs. An important development advantage that Mac OS X Cocoa & carbon development is that offers is the capability to develop programs quickly and easily by assembling reusable components. It produces Bundles of executable code and associated resources which can be loaded and executed dynamically, Collections of custom user-interface objects, Frameworks (sophisticated library structures). These capabilities support the easy creation and distribution of application plug-ins and extensions. Cocoa is a peer to the Carbon and Java application development environments in Mac OS X. Cocoa supports all Mac OS X application service features. For example, Cocoa applications can access the Mac OS X native imaging and printing model, multimedia standards QuickTime and OpenGL, and Internet and BSD services, too. Localization and Internationalization are also well supported by Cocoa. The separation of user interface elements from executable code allows you to package your applications for different locales easily, with no code changes. All Cocoa text drawing utilizes the Unicode standards. The text and font systems are particularly flexible and allow you to use sophisticated word processing features with little effort.
