Basically, you need a system capable of running Eclipse (http://www.eclipse.org Eclipse 3.1 recommended, but it should run on older 3.x versions).
- OS: Mac OS X, Linux, AIX, HP/UX, Solaris or Windows.
- RAM: Somewhere in the gig range is good (But would probably run fine on 512MB).
- Processor: G4 or PIII or higher (But would probably run fine on a 500MHZ Celron too).
- Java: 1.5 (5.0) for snippets to work correctly and for the Image Viewer to work on Mac you need the latest Java (1.5.0_06). You can run just the editor Afae in the 1.4.x JVM however.
- Screen Resolution: 1024 x 768 (The larger the better)
For reference my system specs are:
- OS: Mac OS X 10.4.6
- Processor: 1.33 GHZ PowerPC G4
- RAM: 1.25 GB
- Java: 1.5.0_06
- Screen Resolution: 1280 x 854
