    And another suggestion is JCreator.

    Sure, will do. :) Maybe making this a stickie is a good idea then?

    Captain, I think you meant "Emacs", not "Emac".

    Vi and Textpad can be other options.
    I'm on it! :)

    I am not sure. I dont like the stickies much. They make the forums less readable IMO. But i am open to others' thoughts.

    Whoever voted for Other, if you would like - step forward and discuss the tool you're using and maybe we can add it to the list.

    Cheers. :)

    True.. I was looking forward to more votes.. well.. let's give it plenty of time... afterall- I just posted this last night. Hopefully we'll get more folks chiming in. ;)

    I would like to make it a stickie- but I was planning that after it's been here for awhile and folks have chimed in.

    Why did you use that. There are large number of IDE for Java. Working on TextPad is not easy at all. You have to remember lots of things. Is that easy?

    It's better if you can give some details more, why you like to work on pal?

    I don't know. This is my first year in Programming and this is what we use at school from day one. I like it personally because of the features. It is pretty easy to use it my opinion. But, to set it up...that is another story (I still can't figure out how to set it up at my house).

    Actually adding the TextPad as another editor wont be a dab choice at all Captain. As Zebra says, in our community there can be large number of people who just start to learn Java. In my experience I know that in early stages of studding Java people use, TextPad, NotePad, Word pad etc..

    So, what you think pal. :)

    I think Eclipse is the better IDE, however this was the first IDE I was introduced to and having only tried one or 2 others this seems to be the better. Why?

    It's tooltips and content assist. Ctrl+Space is your friend

    One Disadvantage is the time it takes to provide this content assist some times and the setting up of a project just to allow this.

    I would think Netbeans would be the natural choice for beginners. After all, it is the IDE Sun Java recommends....

    I personally use Netbeans, but am looking for something better.
    I don't like how Netbeans does its indentations; I don't want four spaces, I want one tab. :mad: :D
    I also don't like the way Netbeans builds its directories. I just want two folders, sources, and build. Not that big of a deal though...

    There is an open source IDE called, Geany. With a few changes of the setting, it is almost perfect! It functions almost exactly the way I want it to. Except for when you run an application. It isn't Geany's fault though, when I run the applet, it shows up for a tenth of a second and then disappears. (I think the problem is linux related. Geany runs the application from the terminal as "java path/to/class". Don't know what is going on there.)

    One feature that I have grown to like in Netbeans is how when you screw up, it tells you before you compile it. On the other hand, I find it difficult to distinguish between warnings and errors. I also dislike the way it blinks at me when I'm typing a line.....

    But Geany is open source, maybe I can modify it to better suit my needs. :cool:

    I use JCreator. I was surprised by how many different IDE's there are. Are any of better than the others in any major way? (I'm sure there's lots of little things but I'm looking more at overall aspects.)

    I'm always on the lookout for something better too... however, the problems you mention above are completely configurable. Don't give up so easily! View the netbeans.org site and/or contact the nbusers mailing list for professional assistance with these features.

    Also configurable.

    ??? Netbeans is also open source! haha :D Looks like you need to learn more about it before you say it has problems my friend.
