Installer for the Sun One Studio 4 IDE available Apps
The Sun One Studio 4, Community Edition installer doesn't work, even when using suggestions from Sun (at least for me it didn't). To get around this problem, I have created a Mac OS X friendly installer package. The installer installs the necessary files and an AppleScript that runs the application. Hopefully Sun will include Mac OS X in their "supported systems" in the future.

[Editor's note: I have not tested this installer package myself, but I thought others who do work in Java may find the installer package useful. If you have feedback on how the installer worked for you, please add it in the comments.]

netbeans as an alternative
Authored by: ragnar on Oct 28, '02 06:20:05PM

I appreciate the efforts of the person who contributed the tip. I have nudged Forte/Sun ONE into installing on OS X and then I found that NetBeans has a OS X installer. For a little background, Sun purchased NetBeans and it basically forms the foundation for their product, however the open source <a href="">project</a> still continues. I've used Forte as well as NetBeans and they are functionally identical from what I can tell, so Mac users may want to check out netbeans.

If I'm mistaken about the similar roots and function of Sun ONE and netbeans please correct me.

I've found that Sun ONE is just Netbeans v4. Does anyone know where I could
find a comparison between the various (free) Java IDEs? I'm trying to find
one I can use to teach a class.
