I did look at Geanys source and found some configuration files that would allow me to change the syntax highlighting... I also found out why it wont run the application, but at the moment, there is nothing I can do about...-- www.firemelt.net --
Cheer up, the worst has yet to come...

Best thing you have to do is, go through the quick start tutorial before selecting an IDE. Almost all IDEs has such a tutorial.
And also I think touched on with more than one IDE is a better option, because we can do some processing in easy way in different IDEs. :)

I am using Eclipse and I find it powerful. The GUI looks nice and feels well thought. The concepts are clear and natural for a programmer with some experience. But what absolutely makes it the best choice for me is the amount of features and the plug-ins. I moved to Eclipse a few years back switching from JBuilder and I have no regrets. The fact that Eclipse is not an IDE but a platform for developing IDEs makes it a winner. With the right plug-ins I can work in the same IDE with most of the popular languages on the market and with most of the frameworks and technologies. Excellent integration with tools like CVS, Subversion, ANT and others make it the perfect tool for the full life cycle of a project.
I am not saying other IDEs are not good or lack features. But some of them are not free and most of them I didn't use. And while probably it would be wise to at least try them, let's face it, the time is scarce nowadays.Daniel @ [www.littletutorials.com]

I am also new to Java.
When I first started to learn Java we used Netbeans. (Taking a class at my work but had to drop out when the workload increased.)
I am now working in Eclipse and Textpad. I voted for Eclipse since I am there most of the time, but I use both.
I use Textpad to make my small examples while I am figuring out what I am doing. Usually these are a class and something to drive it during my testing of the class. Since it works well with the Java files and allows color in the test (automatic) for the various parts of the code I find the code easy to read. Textpad also will compile and run my little experiments quick and easy, which is helpful.
We have Rational Functional Tester where I work and it uses the Eclipse IDE. I went through the Eclipse provided tutorial and thought it was good. There are many things Eclipse brings in that I hope to make good use of someday. I do struggle with things like bringing in other .jar files, but I think that is more to do with the way Rational works (or doesn't work) with Eclipse. Eclipse good - Rational ... grrrrrrr

How about Eclipse ftw. It is free and it was developed by a team with funding of multi million dollars.

I have an different opinion over this.
If you are a fresher then do not use IDE. use simple editor that simply highlight the keywords. Because if you are using elipsc,netbeans like IDE at your starting level then you will not get familiar simple and basic problems.
If you have enough experience in development then you should go for IDE to save time and fast development.
What is Your Comments on this?sanjeev,संजीव

We started with notepad so we could learn how to do it ourselves. Without the shortcuts and everything you gain from an IDE, but if you've coded before and have some experience than an IDE is the only way to go.

I agreed with you pal. Still I remember a lot which I have typed letter by letter in notepad, when I start work on Java few years back. :)
All the personally I advice to newbie to work with Notepad. I don't know how many people of you agreed with me. ;)

Ya eranga....i used Notepad at starting level.
Now at work i use Eclipsc.
when i do core java practice i use simple editor...that just highlights keywords only. I use this because i want to check or to improve knowledge related with syntax or API....
What do you say dear about this.:)sanjeev,संजीव

It's fine my friend. Basis always make sense in programming, not only with Java, any. Actually an IDE like you talking about is much better than Notepad. Just highlighting keywords helps to users identify the difference with user texts.
