    I use Eclipse for Java, it's cross-platform, find it at: www.eclipse.org
    Eclipse's code completion is awesome.

    jedit

    jedit is great for java programming, is pretty light weight, does text highlighting, is cross platform and is extensible.

    For java, I would recommend Netbeans. Its a great IDE. Pre-installs ant and tomcat,SAX and DOM APIs. Also has plugins for J2ME. So its a complete package for anything related to Java.

    cheers

    Maybe. It depends on what you're doing with Borland C++. If you're using it to develop Windows software (and using Borland libraries), you probably don't want to try that with Xcode.

    If, on the other hand, you're just looking for C++ and Java development tools then OS X has plenty. Like someone else posted, developer.apple.com is a good place to start.
