    Netbeans, Eclipse, IntelliJ and BlueJ are all Java IDEs that are available for the Mac.

    You should download the developer tools (XCode) to get the java compiler and other tools.

    Javac java compiler should be pre installed on mac os x. For 10.3 I'm not sure about what version you've got tho. Try typing:

    Code:
    javac -version
    In the terminal app to see what version you've got and to confirm that you have it installed.

    DrJava works on mac osx 10.3, but you will not be able to take advantage of the java 5.0 features. I know it's somewhat a pain, but it's the best I have ever found other than XCode. Since you are running a mac, you won't have to set up the compiler or anything.
