OK, MacOSX comes with JDK1.3 preinstalled (simply type java and you will see this), you should be able to dowbnload the gzip version of the j2ee sdk and use it as you would on unix/linux.
Cheers

There is a "developer preview" (beta) of JDK 1.4
for the most recent version of OSX (10.2). See
http://developer.apple.com/java/index.html
for more info. You'll probably have to register
with the Apple Developer Connection (free) before downloading it.
One other thing: it at least used to be the case that the desktop versions of MacOSX didn't support the -server flag to the JVM. To get the server version of the JVM you would want MacOSX Server. Don't know if that is still true with the latest versions though.
 
Whatever you say buddy! And I believe this tiny ad too:
