    Obviously, I can do java dev on my mac...but can I do J2EE (servlets, etc)?
    Sun doesn't list MacOS on their supported platforms :-(

    I had Tomcat installed ages back and it worked fine.

    Thanks

    Thanks...got Tomcat setup, and building servlets. What IDE's do you use? Eclipse seems to crash on OS X when compiling servlets with Tomcat's servlet.jar in the library path.

    For now I've resorted to jEdit for writing the java programs, then build with Ant. However, I prefer a more fully integrated environment. The Tomcat plugin for Eclipse is also not working for me.

    You can look into the MyEclipse IDE plugin for eclipse - I have had pretty good luck with stability with this.

    Otherwise, I have heard VERY good things about IntelliJ IDEA ($$$).
