Hey everybody, I'm starting to aquaint myself with Java and I wanted to ask a few questions. Do any of you have a prefered Text Editor that perhaps compiles java classes as well? For C++, I use DevC++. I didn't know if there was anything like that for Java as well. Anyways, only looking for input. ~toxic

I would also recommend NetBeans which is free too, and I really recommend JCreator, which is a shareware, but has a very fast IDE, and looks a lot like MSDEV, if you're portig from it.
NetBeans was written in java, JCreator was written in C++.
There is also one called BlueJ, I've heard many nice about it, but never tried it. It is free too. I can't give you a link for neither, but googling up they will return close to first. [wink]

Hi, if this is not for serious development or huge projects. I would recommend textpad... Which can be found here...

http://www.textpad.com/

It's fast and easy. It's like using notepad with a built-in compiler.

JCreator is nice as already been mentioned and the cost for the registered version isn't that much (69 USD), for a free IDE I liked Borland's JBuilder which has the foundation edition available for free and is a very capable IDE with some nice features.

Add a vote for Eclipse. It's as close to the .NET development environment that you can get with Java. It even has advantages in some areas ;) My personal favorite is the automatic compile error detections in real-time (as you type).
