Is anyone having a problem using Eclispe on OS X?
If not, see my post @ IDE's and other tools.

How do you right click an apple mouse?

I haven't tried Eclipse, but I've never had any problems running other Java-based IDEs under OS X (my IDE of choice being OmniCore CodeGuide).

How do you right click an apple mouse?



You either Ctrl-click, or spend the $14 and get a multi-button mouse.

Off-topic from the original question, but OmniCore CodeGuide doesn't seem to be getting a lot of buzz. What do you like about it?

I usually eschew IDEs since they seem to get in the way of programming rather than really helping. CodeGuide seems to have gotten the balance right -- at least for my way of writing code.

Top 5 Things I really like (among many):

- On-the-fly compiling as you type so errors are flagged immediately
- excellent code completion (with javadoc access)
- excellent Ant integration
- very good refactoring support
- Executes on Windoze, OS X and Linux

There are a bunch of things I think could use improving, but that's a much smaller list than with other IDEs I've used.

Thanks Bear. I didn't know my "fancy" mouse came in any other varieties.
Where did you get your mouse from Apple or 3rd party?

Any USB mouse should do. (Personally, I use a USB trackball).

Well I've tried using Eclipse on my PB. And since Panther neither 2.x nor 3.x (tried several of the milestone releases) works properly. They all install fine: but none recognise Java anymore- ie they don't syntax highlight or treat Java as anything other than a plain text file.

So when I noticed IntelliJ was on special offer ($140 or thereabouts) over Easter a bought a copy of that.

I don't see that problem, if fact I can see small colored images show many properties

The editor includes the following features:
Syntax highlighting
Content/code assist
Code formatting
Import assistance
Quick fix
Integrated debugging features

I run Eclipse 3.0.0 under Panther 10.3.4 on an iBook G3 700 with 640 MB RAM. It runs fine, altho it makes me want a faster laptop.

I'm running elcipse 2.1.3 on panther. works fine.

if you don't have a 2+ button mouse, hold down CTRL while you click.. that's the same as right-clicking.
