JBuilder 2005 - a whole new level of ineptness

Sign in to follow this  


(Yes, I know, this is supposed to be a .NET-focused journal. But I have to use Java for school, so I think it's ok to sneak in the occasional Java-related post.)

In my never-ending search for a decent Java IDE, I recently decided to install Borland's JBuilder 2005 Foundation. What a mistake that turned out to be. I simply can't comprehend how such shoddy products can actually be released. The forms designer is so slow and buggy as to be beyond useless. The entire IDE is a train wreck of miserable performance, astronomical memrory usage, and sheer ugliness.

I guess it's back to Eclipse for now.
