Anyone know of a good java program to use with the powerbook? I currently use Blue J but I don't know if there are any programs just for macs. By the way, i'm taking java for the first time in grad school, but even though its a noob class, its still program heavy. Any help is appreciated.

If I were you, I'd take this question to the developer forum down below.

However, from my experience, Project Builder works well, and it's free (it supports plain Java apps), Eclipse works ok (it's stable, just not fast...will be fixed in the next version) and is also free. Metrowerks Codewarrior also works well, but it isn't free...

I code java for a living and I still like to use Eclipse... its a free open project, its supported by IBM, its stable and it has tons of plugins... i think its as good as JBuilder, etc...

go to www.eclipse.org to download... they have a native Mac OS X version...

Try our Developer Center forum... there's no special compiler for a PowerBook -- why should there be?!?
