Are there any development tools like NetBeans or Eclipse on OS X that I can use to write an application?

    You mention Netbeans and Eclipse - are you specifically looking for Java-related tools, or development in general? There are dozens of development tools/platforms you can use on the Mac (many of which I'm happy to mention if you are casting your net wider than Java). – robsoft Aug 26 '10 at 9:38

Xcode was good for your job. If you want use NetBeans and Eclipse on your Mac, you can download them, too, because they have OS X distributions.

    It is Xcode, not XCode, xCode, or X Code (my friends on the Xcode team point that out constantly ;-) – Louis Gerbarg Aug 26 '10 at 2:12

    You should also correct the overall syntax and orthography. – Studer Aug 26 '10 at 18:14

If you are looking for Java development on the Mac, both NetBeans and Eclipse have a distribution for Mac OS X. Xcode also has support for Java, but it is not a Java-centric tool.

There are built-in vim and emacs. Both of them can be used as IDE.

Built-in vim and emacs don't have GUI (only console versions) but at least they are relatively new in latest OSX versions.

If you want GUI versions there are MacVim and a couple of GUI emacses for OSX.
