Java Mac OS X is a powerful platform for Java development. While the Java development environment is fully integrated into Mac OS X, the Eclipse integrated development environment brings a fully integrated Java development environment to Mac OS X that provides a consistent cross-platform experience. This article shows you how to use this environment to import existing Xcode projects into Eclipse, tweak key bindings, and integrate Eclipse with the Mac OS X-bundled Concurrent Versions System.

Aren't the Java cocoa bindings deprecated as of 10.4?

Yes, this is true. But what is your point?

I found it really strange to mix up Java and the Cocoa Widgets. Because you loose the platform independency (wasn't this what Java is for?) and the Swing Widgets with the OS X Look-and-Feel are looking goot and they are working well.

Eclipse doesn't use the Java cocoa bindings. It uses SWT, which is written using Carbon.

That same Carbon that won't have a 64 bit version? That sounds like it could be fun going forward.

Sort of. I mean they don't look bad, but they aren't seemless. And I don't like being stuck with aqua pinstripes only (the brushed metal look is a hack and apparently not a priority: the resize thumb at the bottom right is still an Aqua thumb etc.) I wonder how/if things will change with the more uniform UI I hear rumours of for Leopard
