    I would say it was borne out of their business model more so than rivalry. And that business model probably won't change anytime soon.

    Also, IPad apps requires is like Eclipse, Objective-C is like Java, a powerful OO c-style language that you do everything application for IPad. Moreover I think that there is no way to avoid it if you are serious about developing iphone apps.

    There is an interesting application called Java Programming Language with Reference in the following link

    App Store - Java Programming Language with Reference

    I just downloaded and as far as I know the only requirement is to have Internet connection to compile and execute your programs.

    Hope it helps,
