    I use eclipse, or to take a quick look at a java file I use gedit. I have also used Emacs is the past.

    And for some strange reason when I was in school our professor wanted us to use pico on the sun machines. That was not fun.

    Hello All,

    Just to advise you that, the more helpful editor you use at beginner stage the less API you learn, so better to use Notepad++, EditPlus etc to write Core Java programs.

    Doing this you will have fair idea of Java APIs.

    Ah good advice. I started programming using text editors and then got into IDEs. Never thought what it would be like to go in the other direction.

    Hi to all.
    This is first Hi to everyone....
    See, I am completely beginner in Java now, but still I have used my user name as Java Developer as I feel good to use it.
    So, I use Notepad to type any java program, and I run it through command prompt as any beginner would be using it.
    But my seniors use Eclipse and so I will in future.

    Cool

    One more thing..
    As I think, If you have to learn a lot as per coding and you are new in Java world then go for simple editors like Notepad or NotePad++.
    You will have to write all codes self and so you will learn a lot, but this will not happen with IDE.

    One more thing: people new to Java or programming who dive straight in to, say, Netbeans or Eclipse don't even read the online help manuals; I've seen numerous posts such as: "Eclipse (or Netbeans) doesn't allow me to <whatever>, it has a bug!". Or, "it runs fine in Eclipse but my .jar doesn't work!". People simply try to click their way through without knowing what they're doing and of course it's Eclipse's (or Netbeans') fault. It is saddening.

    kind regards,

    Jos

    That's very good point actually. Lots of members post there question here in the forum, right after endup with an error. They never looking into it, and asking others to do it.

    well said,
    I appreciate your thoughts Jos...
    in fact people should be more calculative instead of asking others.
    And when you dont find the satisfied solution then come to the FORUMS
    Loads of members are here to help.
    But again, try to find out the solution self.

    I like Notepad++. It's environmentally friendly and highlights most key words for many languages.

    I like eclipse helios a lot. I've used Netbeans and Oracle JDeveloper before. Eclipse just seems lighter (less overhead).

    Ok I use netbeans 6.9
    I'm still pretty new to the java game, CIT had me using BlueJ, but later I discovered Netbeans and really liked it. I've had a look at Eclipse, but didnt think it was as intuitive (well for me anyway) as Netbeans.

    Cheers

    Eclipse takes some getting used to. Just follow a couple tutorials and it will make the transition easier. I've just found that my system becomes slow and unresponsive at times when I use Netbeans. With Eclipse, it's much better. It could be my Netbeans settings though. Whatever the case, I do like Eclipse more at the moment. Plus, I do some work with GWT (Google Windows Toolkit) and there is a nice plug-in for Eclipse.

    Default Netbeans

    I learnt to code on BlueJ and later transitioned to Eclipse and Netbeans. BlueJ is a great educational IDE as it firmly ingrains the idea of OOP into beginners. I really enjoy Netbeans because of the vast selection of plugins and features that never limit me when my development has to take unforeseen changes in strategy. Not to mention the debugging and analysis features both Netbeans and Eclipse have ;)
    Voted Netbeans. :)

    I use TextWrangler and Terminal. I would use eclipse (I have it downloaded) but I thought it would be better to start with a command-line compiler.

    Also, I use TextWrangler since at school we use Geany, and they are very similar.

    I started my programming endeavors with notepad, then I moved to notepad++. After learning C++ I started playing with other editors. I found Eclipse and I like the interface so I used it to learn Java.

    I'd use the notepad because I don't know what else better IDEs that I can use.
    What IDEs does everyone recommended?:)

    That's the sole purpose of this thread; see the top of this page for the recommendations.

    GENIUS: using notepad will make you a genius in java but you'll be a lot less productive than using an IDE - after all thats what they're for

    I don't know why eclipse is so popular because I've only tried netbeans IDE so far. When I download the Android SDK i'll definately start it with eclipse, but for now I'm already used to the netbeans interface so i'll finish my current project in netbeans.

    The only downfall to Eclipse is that if you don't have a syntax error in your main class, but you have an exception it tells you that you don't have a main class. There are ways to check your code if it asks that, but if you don't know what it means it can be a headache.
