So Begins the Battle!

Having finally taken the plunge after about a million years worth of false starts and regrets, I finally went out and purchased a new MacBook Pro Mavericks laptop.  My first application to tackle was the Spring Tool Suite (STS) from the wonderful people at Pivotal, a tool which I have always traditionally used on either a PC or a Linux workstation.

After seeing that there seemed to be a mix of opinions on how to go about installing STS on a Mac, I decided to take notes.  Hopefully these notes might help someone else out there who is also struggling, as after a day and a half of battling what seems to be an Apple snub of Java and/or Oracle, combined with my own Mac noobism, I seem to have conquered the fud and at last I am declaring victory!
