    I've decided to set up my macbook air for light Java development while traveling. Currently I do all my coding under ubuntu using emacs but I would like to choose a graphical IDE to use under OS X. My question is how do I go about installing the JDK and out of netbeans, eclipse, or inteli what do you all recommend?

    You get the JDK from Apple's developer site:

    All the programs you have mentioned have Mac versions, so just go to their websites.

    I find Eclipse to be very unstable on OS X (and everything else). I highly suggest using NetBeans, or if you don't mind spending the money IntelliJ is always a better choice.

    Or do the right thing and use vi :)D)
