I'm getting interested in OS X and I'm wondering what kind of support there is for MAC from Sun.

Well it is Unix, and can run java no problem, and you get to use vi to edit if you want.
My friend Rudy at work has it and loves it and he codes some Java.

Would he happen to use JBuilder by any chance?

I've been doing all my Java servlet, JSP and web development on OS X since the beginning of the year. I've never been happier.
I use Omnicore CodeGuide as my IDE. Not free, but I like it much more than NetBeans (which also seems to run fine though I don't use it).
The only possible gripe I could have is that a JDK 1.4 implementation is not yet available. Apple has pledged support for Java on OS X and plans to get themselves in a position to be better able to keep up to date with the latest developments from Sun.
I use ant at the unix command line for building, Apache/Tomcat for web serving, and a host of other unix command line tools. All Java-based programs, GUI or otherwise, seem to work fine. And of couse, the Mac-native GUI programs are great.
Anyone want a Windows desktop system? I haven't used mine in months.

That's awesome. I've been using JBuilder for almost a year now and I really need that IDE. I also use Ant (AntRunner which is an addon to JBuilder), Tomcat, and other open source tools. I'm very happy to hear you're pleased with the performance/overall ability of Java technology on the Apple computers. I went to CompUSA tonight and teased myself by playing with a Powerbook. I would love to develop my code on OS X.
