Every Mac OS X box ships with Java 2 installed. From the familiar command line applications to Apple's free IDE, we'll take a look at how to develop Java applications on and for Mac OS X from three perspectives:

The tools: What are the tools available for you for developing Java applications on your Mac? Many of your favorite open source and commercial applications just work on Mac OS X. Others work better on the Mac and still others are available only on the Mac. You'll have a comprehensive overview of configuring your toolset on Mac OS X.

Platform Advantages: There are features that you can take advantage of when you target Mac OS X for your Java application. You may be interested in adding Spell Checking, or Speech Synthesis and Recognition. You may want to use Java to control your QuickTime movies. This section highlights the benefits of bringing your Java application to Mac OS X.

Targeting the Mac: A Java application can be made to feel almost native on Mac OS X. We'll explore options in deploying your application as well as the tweaks you should make to your code to make it more "Mac like."
