    Hi,

    I am a final year CS student who has been working commercially using J2EE for the past year. As I have a fair bit of experience with J2EE (EJB2.1 / EJB3 / Struts mainly) my final year project will incorporate these skills.

    I am looking for a laptop so that any development done at home can be taken in to uni and be demoed / worked on using the laptop continuing from where I left off on my home machine. I have a Apple Student Developer Account which expires in October which I purchased with the intention of buying a mac book when the core2duo models first came out, but never had the cash spare. I am seriously considering getting the lower model mac book pro when my student grant comes through.

    What is the java development environment like on a mac. I mainly use Jet Brains Inteli J but have some experience with net beans, can these be run on a mac? What about subversion clients? Tomcat? Resin? JBoss? MySql? Postgress? Is their any mac specific tools I should take a look at?

    I have very limited mac experience apart from fixing my sisters when she does something or I change the WPA key on the wifi. From what I have seen though I do like the mac as when I open a terminal I feel right at home with having good linux knowledge.

    I know I can always dual boot with linux or windows, or even run a virtual machine to do the task but would be interested in if I could achieve what I want to do within OS X.

    Thanks,
    Adam,

    I take the silence as no one here uses J2EE on the mac for web development, or OS X is a poor platform for it????????

    You are looking for advice at the wrong site. Most people here use PHP if any server-side scripting at all. Why don't you do a google search? I'm sure you'll get much better results.

    Or just check each of the developer sites and look for Mac OS X versions of each. That should answer your question. From my experience, I can tell you that Subversion, Tomcat, and MySQL exist on the mac.

    I believe that every single piece of software that you mentioned can be run on a Mac or has a Mac version.

    All the major Java IDEs work on the Mac. This includes IntelliJ IDEA, Netbeans and, my personal choice, Eclipse.
