Internally at Devada, we mostly use IntelliJ IDEA, and in some cases Eclipse. For markup editing, we usually use non-resource-demanding editors, such as Sublime.
AnswerHub is a Java web application, and so it needs an application container to run. We support Apache Tomcat version 7, using a version that uses the new WebSockets support and servlet API 3.
We support MySQL 5.5, 5.6, or 5.7 and any MySQL GUI tool.
