Hello all,
my question is following:
Why did Apple drop WebObjects or did not support it anymore although it was a good product?

I believe internally it was supported for quite awhile as iTunes was and maybe still is built on WebObjects. The problem I think is it wasn't generating any revenue for Apple. Being written in Java, you didn't need a Mac to use it.
