I've used Sun and IBM implementations w/o any problems. I find myself
using Sun's more often -- couldn't tell you why. ;)

Not yet! ;) Mostly a matter of tweeking paths or environment variables to
use the one you want.

I also found Borland/Inprise/Whatever-they're-called-this-week's JBuilder
very useful. I've always been a big fan of designing UIs with a GUI rather
than coding them by hand, and it does an excellent job -- especially if
you're not familiar with the whole "packing widgets" thing. ;)
