For beaTunes, things are a bit different, since it uses Java as a runtime. So far, Oracle (or anyone else I know of) has not sent a Java runtime compiled against macOS SDK 10.9 or later, and the hardened macOS runtime. Additionally, Oracle's Java executable files are not signed with appropriate signature algorithms (see Bug JDK-8223671 for a detailed list of notarization errors). All this is a requirement for notarization. There is no way for me to send a notarized version of beaTunes before they are addressed, and unless I want to roll my own version of Java (I do not !!), I simply have to wait and hope that someone at Oracle will take pity on Mac devs.
It is becoming increasingly difficult to get off the beaten track using Apple's preferred tools and frameworks.
“Uploading to Apple to Notarize” is the new “COMPILING! ”
