I've recently purchased a Mac and have little knowledge of Java related software for the Mac. I'd like to work on JSP, servlet, JDBC, SQL etc and would like to know of any recommendations for software relating to setting up this type of enviornment.
Any suggestions on what works best with OS X and where to find it would be appreciated.
Regards, Michael

Hi Michael,
Just about every java-based app I've tried works flawlessly under OS X.
For the servlet/JSP engine, Tomcat works well.
MySQL and PostgrSQL both run as databases.
Others may work as well.
hth,
bear

OSX is an amazing platform for Java development. You should feel right at home with Apache, Tomcat, and MySQL.

Ditto the above. Will add the following:
java-dev@lists.apple.com
Join. Excellent discussions on the uniqueness of Mac OS X implementation of Java. Many good. Some...well, need workarounds. Sun recently had some excellent articles on developing/porting applications to Apple's implementation.
java.sun.com
Also consider O'Reilly's new book /Mac OS X for Java Geeks/

Hi all,
New around these here parts and also new to Java but have some stuff that may help a little...
With Mac OSX - there are some "easy" MySQL installations - www.entropy.ch has one and there is a www.serverlogistics.com for the other. Free and good.
You can use the Terminal application to access MySQL but look out for Cocoa - a GUI MySQL designed for OSX tool - free and good.
As for Java - there is Project Builder which comes on the Developer Tools CD - if you don't have it I am sure your Apple dealer will give you a copy - it is free I think. NetBeans is a Java application itself but a bit bloated.
Stay with Project Builder - a bit confusing at first (check out Apples site for some good docs) but it's quite trim and better then NetBeans IMHO.
There is a real cool free Java IDE for Windows - www.jcreator.com - the "lite" version is free.
Will write more later maybe.
Respect
Brynley
