    i read the book java programming for students(my first book for java really recommend it) and there was a little ide (japa i believe) used it very long until i don't know which jdk version came out which gave and advice, not an error while compiling but japa saw it as an error and refused to run the program :(.
    now i use netbeans(never discovered how to use eclips) and i am very happy.
    easy to debug, gui builder,...

    FTW, I just switched over to it as well, only so much you can put up with text editors until you need a program to write code for you :D

    So beautiful being able to type a random 4 line declaration instantiating a class method and fields that don't exist and then eclipse automatically writes all the classes, methods and fields for you :D

    I am using netbeans. Only using it because its the first compiler i came across when looking for a good java compiler. I see a lot of people use eclipse. Is eclipse a much better compiler? :)

    I'm an Eclipse user, so I'm biased, but I would say there are arguments that could suggest Eclipse is not the best (ok, really biased). However, I can say, I have tried others (including Netbeans), and ended with Eclipse for several reasons.

    1) The ability to hover over a field, method name, class name, etc. and have the Javadocs show as a "ToolTip". This is really helpful when you want to remember something, or want to learn more about it, since you can also go to the source code for the value.

    2) When you make a mistake in Eclipse, it not only tells you, but offers assistance how to fix it. Like gcampton mentioned, you can write code that creates a class, and Eclipse will fill in the holes, just hover over the error, and helpful solutions are offered.

    So basically, I find Eclipse more user-friendly in how it handles our mistakes. With Netbeans, it felt like the compiler was yelling at me because I wasn't perfect. Eclipse, on the other hand, knows humans are imperfect, and offers helpful solutions to our mess-ups. It helps bridge the connection between human and machine.

    I think there would be times and situations where I would use Netbeans over Eclipse, but not many, for instance writing apps for mobile phones or some such.
    But for regular apps and coding Eclipse definitely seems like a winner to me. I think the main reason Netbeans has not evolved in such a way as Eclipse as the writers perhaps believe that writing code should be precise and intended. However I'm just theorizing.
    I'm sure there's lots of instances on both sides that are benefitial to the individual, so really much depends on your use. In general the look and feel, and the suggested errors,(That DONT get in your way like the MS paper-clip) of Eclipse provide a much better experience for me. (bias as well)

    gcampton reminded me that there is one department, hands down, that Netbeans is MUCH better than Eclipse and that is that Netbeans has a built-in GUI creator.

    Whenever I need to create GUIs, I use Netbeans. Thankfully, Netbeans allows you to import your Eclipse project, and will even save the data in the Eclipse folder (or you can store it in a separate Netbeans folder).

    Using Netbeans, I can create a GUI using its intuitive GUI creator, and use it as part of my project. Netbeans is a really big lifesaver in this department, because I'm not good with building GUIs and other "spatial relation" tasks.

    What I like most from eclipse is the CTRL + SPACE command :) that will autocomplete the field for you. And also with the curly lines which indicate errors..

    :D

    Default Crimson Editor

    I've used Crimson Editor for many years VBScript, HTML, a little JavaScript and some others.
    For how small it is it packs in many features, I'll continue using it but I do need to learn Eclipse, maybe I'll add it as an editor within eclipse.

    It's free but one cans sponsor the project with a donation, yes I have sponsored because it is a very nice tool.

    TO work around with mobile application in Java you need to have a different enviornment in your PC.

    First of all you need to work on with J2ME. Download the latest version from the web and install in your PC.

    You can use numerous IDEs for coding in J2ME. I'm using NetBeans for everything.

    You may need device specification docs as well, possible to find on the web easily.

    Using NP++ and the command prompt you can write codes in J2ME, but it's not easy.

    I like Eclipse. A complete IDE for me. Good shortcuts and nice workspace.

    Nice! ;) The best IDE ever. :D That's what we did back in school. What torture that was. :p
