    I would have to say i use a combination of BlueJ (Free :)) and edit plus at the moment...
    On my uni corse we started on blueJ i'm guessing because it doesnt do anything fancy...
    Text highlighting, compiling, capturing output/errors etc
    So its pretty typey and thats pretty much why i'v stuck with it so long, we havnt been given any direction towards any perticular app but i think i'll maybe look at eclips in the near future... just want to keep slogging it out character for character until i'm happy (which could be a while i'll admit as this is my first language heh).

    But yes, i also use Edit plus here and there when using mysql and such because for some reason i suspect its quicker (completely unsubstanciated, dont ask heh)...

    Just my 02 cents :)

    Default Your mission is to blur the line between text editor and IDE. <cue-music/>

    1. Download your editor: EditPlus Text Editor ... Note that it's NOT freeware.

    2. Download your API(s) from Java Documentation in Windows Help format (WinHelp and HTMLHelp) ... they've now got both J2SE and J2EE. Install it.

    3. In edit plus goto Tools menu ~ configure user tools ~ add tool ~ html help file (*.chm) ~ call it J2SE API (or whatever) ~ click on the [...] button next to filename, select your CHM file, and press OK.

    That's it... your done.

    To test it: Select the name of any "standard" Java class and press ctrl-1 (or 2, or whatever).

    You should see either an API page, or a disambiguation list.

    Hint: It also works on method names... very handy of you want to know all the classes which implement an interface.

    Hint: It's relatively quick and easy to create your own CHM files from javadoc html, either for your libraries, or for your commonly used 3rd-party libraries. Vely intertesting.

    Cheers mate. Keith.

    cool thanks. I borrowed that idea and used it on np++ using "Run". Here's the cmd:
    Java Code:
    KeyHH.exe -#alink $(CURRENT_WORD) c:\j2se6.chm
    USE CODE TAGS--> [CODE]...[/CODE]
    Get NotePad++ (free)

    Move little ahead, you can use Notepad++ as well. Have a nice syntax highlighting as well, helpful a lot for coding.

    Our university uses BlueJ and DrJava for our java classes, so I've naturally become accustomed to Dr Java. I'll use BlueJ occasionally but I'm more partial to Dr Java :)

    If I'm right Dr.Java is a light weight IDE. I mean not comes with advanced features, like embed with SVN, server integration and so on. Is it?

    Thats right, this is probably why the university uses it (at least for first years), it's good for beginners' learning without overcomplicating things with features that wouldn't really be useful until more advanced programming. That, or the lecturer may just have personal preference! :p

    100 marks to you. ;) Actually I really like that if universities use notepad + command prompt in the beginning.

    You know, just after my graduation I work in my university as an instructor and teach Java and Z80 Basics. For all of them I use notepad + command prompt. At the very beginning some of the students anger with me and ask me to use more advance IDE. Actually those students are get familiar with NetBeans, Eclipse IntelliJIDEA and so on. But at the end other students get higher marks than those, and now they believe learning fundamentals in hard way make a real sense. ;)

    I can see the reasoning there, you get to appreciate the ins and outs of compiling etc. and have a more solid understanding of exactly what's going on. In fairness to my lecturer, we did use notepad and command prompt for the first 5 or so lectures while everyone was getting their bearings so we had a more solid foundation and understanding and we went over javac etc. before switching to Dr. Java and then eventually looking at BlueJ

    Actually most of the members' comments on newbie is that. Best way to kick-off with java. :) Actually on anything.

    I've been using Eclipse, I find the syntax highlighting (and sometimes parameter-list pop up) useful, as well as some of the auto-error reporting (mouse over the underlined line, it gives a brief and usually accurate description of what your doing wrong - probably good for beginners) but know that Eclipse also has features for advanced programmers as well.

    +1 eclipse is great. It has SVN integration too so you can rollback to earlier version of your code if something goes horribly, horribly wrong.

    If I need to use an editor to quickly modify something as opposed to opening a full IDE then I use gedit on gnome (I like the automatic backup file creation feature) and on Windows I use notepad++.

    So... basically I have no idea what option to choose for this poll. :p

    In my mind the poll is secondary to the discussion, so in this regard, your post is quite informative, and helps to continue this thread in a forward direction.

    I voted other for I use Geany. It's really the only one I've ever used (in my 2 weeks of programming), but I tried Eclipse, and didn't like it... Geany is lighter, smaller in file size, and easier to navigate. I don't know how well the syntax corrector is (or whatever you call it) since I haven't programmed hardcore yet, but it has one, and it appears to work fairly well.

    I just like it because it's easy for my simple little mind to use, I guess. xD

    I use NetBeans mainly because I come from Microsoft's Visual Studios and NetBeans imitates them alot in the way things are set up.

    I prefer DrJava. It's simple, provides good features, and suits my needs.

    I don't get most ides, taking up a whopping 400mb+ of space.
    I'd rather use an editor that provides things I use,
    rather than an ide which provides all the things I don't.
