After a lot of work and some traveling I’m back, and I’m about to write about how do I manage to use Mac for Java development. (Note: This is the last part of the Apple Project series.)
First of all, let me describe what I use and how do I/we use it.
Eclipse is our choice of IDE. We use Subversion as SCM, Maven as a build system/dependency management/reporting/documentation/etc.. Beside these we use, (just to mention few that could be in relation with OS):
- Hibernate for JPA
Primarily we are building web applications, backed with RDBMS – so I need a some local database for my Mac, and our choice of RDBMS is PostgreSQL, but we use Oracle and DB2 as well.

My adventure in the world of Apples goes on. As I mostly liked the iron of the MacBook, now it is time to go on and see if I can do usual task as simple as in Ubuntu.
So I gathered things I do mostly:
- Photo processing
- Java development
- Listen to music – I’ll need a good media player, an alternative to Amarok
- Browse the net – Firefox or better
- Chat through GTalk and Skype
- Copy files from/to FTP, SFTP, WebDAV, SMB – a twin panel, alternative to Krusader
- Simple text editing – jEdit should work
- Formated text, spreadsheet and presentation – OpenOffice.org or alternative
- Video playing – mplayer with front-end or alternative.
