NetBeans 5.0 and Mac Intel

Hi there,

I recently bought my first Mac(Intel) and I'm quite impressed, but have here some problems with starting NetBeans 5.0.
I downloaded the NetBeans 5.0 Archive and just unziped it. In the netbeans5.0/bin folder is a file 'netbeans' with no file extension. If I open the terminal I can start NetBeans with './netbeans' from that folder.

My question is how can I start Netbeans by just double clicking on the icon?

If I'm right Apple has its own Java implementation, means that I can't use Java 6.0 Beta at this time?

Thanks in advance.
Stephan

That's most likely a shell script that starts the program. Make a copy of it and give it the file type of .command and it becomes double-clickable.

And yes, as Sun does not create Java implementations for OS X, Apple has to do it themselves.
