O'Reilly has published "," a book by Will Iverson that explores Java development on Mac OS X. "Mac OS X is finally a developer's platform," the author says, "with the melding of BSD, a killer user interface, and unprecedented stability, code can finally be written on the Mac OS X platform and deployed to Windows, Linux, Unix, or other Mac OS X Servers." The book begins by laying out the Mac OS X tool set, from the included Java Runtime Environment to third-party tools, IDEs, and Jakarta Ant. Readers are then brought up to speed on advanced, Mac-specific extensions to Java.
