Hi,

I am planning to buy laptop, and Mac is also one of my choice.
But I never used any OS other than Windows.
So my question is:
Do all Java related things like core java, jsp, servlet, struts, jsf, hibernate, websphere, oracle, etc... works properly on Mac and what about configuration things.

Please suggest

Yes to core java, jsp, servlet, struts, jsf, and hibernate. Not sure about the proprietary servers and databases. Tomcat, Resin, PostgreSQL and MySQL work fine, as does HSQLDB.

As long as the product does not consist of native libraries (or provides them for OSX), yes. I have a hunch that Oracle might not work on a Mac but I'm not sure.

There are some Application servere and databases that don't work native on a Mac.

Oracle only works on a Mac with Leopard Server version (on Tiger it also works on the client version)
Oracle Database 10g Release 1 (10.1.0.3)

Webspere and WebLogic are some of the Application servere that doesn't work native on a Mac.

BUT you can install a virtual server, like:
VMware Fusion
Parallels
VirtualBox

and you have the same configurations options as on a Windows or Linux box

I own a mac and run tomcat, jetty, mysql, eclipse, jedit, antlr, and a few other tools. I think I also ran jboss a while back. In general I think you will find the mac a great platform for java.

I also use open office for standard desktop operations. I backup my computer with mozy backup.
