Macbook - first mac

I always worked using PC, and now I'm planning to buy my first mac, a Macbook.
But before that I have a newbie question... I see in this forum that is possible to work in Mac OS with java SDK and eclipse... but I'd like to check if do you guys think is possible to work with most Application Server, for example WebLogic, websphere and jboss? Does anyone work with this AS in Mac OS?

My understanding is that WebLogic will run on Mac OS, but is not officially supported.

JBoss is included with Mac OS X Server. There is also a download from the Apple Developer's Connection that "contains the project templates and assistants needed to create J2EE application projects in Xcode. It will also install a complete copy of JBoss and Tomcat, so that you can install it on a Mac OS X client system and use it to investigate J2EE technologies." (Note: Xcode is a cool, free IDE for Mac.)

I agree. Here's the link:
