4. iTunes > 60. Use Java to Expand iTunes Functionality

Use Java to Expand iTunes Functionality

MyTunes is an easy-to-use and extensible framework you can use to build upon iTunes’ built-in functionality. With a little help from Java, you can even run iTunes remotely from another machine.

AppleScript fans have had hooks in iTunes for several years, which makes the information in your music library accessible to other scriptable applications. And while AppleScript can be glued together with other components in OS X (in the Terminal, via the /usr/bin/osascript command and AppleScript’s do shell script command), attempting to provide your music information to nonscriptable applications or resources (e.g., a web site powered by PHP and MySQL) has traditionally been done in hack-and-scratch ways.
