Hi, I would like to create an e-commerce site with capabilities such as database management and paypal secure transactions, and I would like to know which Mac software would best suit me.
Something as powerful as Asp.net for microsoft... Thanks in advance..

There are several factors to consider. Will you be creating from scratch, or will you be using a pre-existing e-commerce solution. Will you be hosting it yourself, or will you be going with a hosting provider?

For development purposes on a Mac, you'll need to activate your Apache web server with PHP (this comes pre-installed with Mac OS X) and install MySQL for your database. As far as an IDE for Mac, there are several to choose from. Aptana Studio, NetBeans and Eclipse are a few of the most popular.

Here are a few links to get you started:

Thanks for the comment.. I was thinking about creating it from scratch..but if I find an existing e-commerce that can be useful.. Then I'll be using that one...I wont host the page.. Cuz I might need some javascripts running on the server. Thanks

The Adobe suites work on MAC.  The software includes dreamweaver and fireworks which are great for web editing.  With most ecommerce software it doesn't matter if you have a MAC or PC.
