    Hello Guys,

    Anybody knew of an Java Compiler for Mac?

    I'm using Jcreator but i didn't know that it is only for win****.

    I'm still enjoying my mac :party: and i don't want to buy another PC :dry:.

    Thanks in advance!

    Regards,
    Carlo

    JEdit has plugins. I'm using J2SDK and J2EE. What are the plugins would you like to recommend?

    Do you really mean compilers or IDEs?

    Every mac comes with the basic Java CLI tools like java, javac, javap, javadoc, etc. They can all be run from the terminal just like any Linux or Windows PC.

    As for IDEs, there's XCode which is the built-in IDE for the Mac, it's in the Developer Tools CD or installer. However I find it a bit slow to startup on my iBook G4 800 and I hate that it can only build/compile projects not individual Java files.

    I strongly recommend you check out Eclipse, IBM's Java IDE. www.eclipse.org.

    Personally though, I'm an Emacs zealot and just compile through the CLI =p

    Ok, thanks to all! I'll check the strong recommendation of jino. But, man, i salute you for developing manually through the CLI.
