    If you are using Java 6 then you'll want to see if that option is available. I don't think it is right now.

    Specs:
    Mac Pro 2xQuad core 2.8GHZ
    Java 6 is not yet available on the Mac.

    Eclipse gets my vote.

    Download MAMP to get yourself a proper install of mysql and the Apache server.
