    wheres the love for Notepad++ ???!?!?!?!?! I'm all for learning how to program WITHOUT the help of an IDE, this way you really get to learn syntax and classes/methods you use regularly instead of using autocomplete, etc.

    TextPad works fine for me. It is simple, minimalistic, and it gets the job done. I have heard good things about Notepad++ though, so I might try it out one of these days.

    Yes.. Initially career started with DrJava and BlueJ editors,then moved to Eclipse for web application development which is easy to work.In college days we had used notepad editor with command prompt as a secondary development for java execution.Working in notepad without any automatic and user prompts is very tough to work.But initially for a java developer the best way to work is notepad where they should be clear with all syntax's specifically.

    I must agree with you on some of this. It is never good to start using auto-complete straight away, since there is a lot to miss by doing so, however, IDEs can be useful in many other ways.

    For example, I've been using Eclipse right from the start, but I've still never used "Generate getters/setters", class templates, etc.
    There are many things which an IDE offers that are good features which will not stop you from learning.
    In many cases I've used Eclipse's method lists and javadoc, instead of having to go straight to google every time I'd forgotten the parameters of a method or needed to use a new class which I was to use.
    Then there are this about renaming stuff. Consider you have a data-class with static variables in it. You need to rename one of them, one which is used everywhere in your code. With Eclipse this can be done by simply renaming the variable at one place, but in NotePad...

    So, as a conclusion:
    There are a great many features in an IDE that can easily be abused, making it impossible for you to work with something as simple as NotePad, since you don't know your syntax, however, if you use an IDE in a good manner it will be a great tool which will make you learn (and write) much faster.

    (Yes, I know this thread might not be here for debates, but I just wanted to get this out.)

    Good points Komposten...

    I just wanted to add to my original post (and stir the pot a little... hehe) -- that IDE's shield a new programmer from some of the "behind the scenes" stuff... and not always in a good way. For example... with an IDE a new programmer will not learn how to manually compile a program using the jdk on the command line, or in some rare cases of being self-taught, may not even become aware that such a thing exists or that the IDE is actually doing it for them (Yikes!). Or one of the more difficult things I've had troubles with is getting my darn classpaths correctly set at the command line compiler, or actually running a java method from the command line that is part of a larger class in a package, or from a jar. This sometimes can be admittedly frustrating lol.

    Another big drawback to using an IDE from the get-go is error correction when you have a compilation error or a runtime error. The IDE's provide you with a ton of visual clues that are all too easy to become dependent on. When a runtime error occurs and the programmer is outside the comfort of an IDE, it will likely be much more difficult for them to diagnose what the problem is because they lack the experience of solving these sort of problems on their own using just the basic exception outputs or stack traces from the program.

    I'm a self-taught java programmer, and quite a newbie at that still by my own regards. The first two books I read to teach myself java always started out with the command line jdk compiler and jre, as well as insisted on starting out with using a basic text editor (notepad, notepad++, VIM, etc... anything that didn't format the text and wasn't an IDE). Now my third book i'm reading starts you off in an IDE using NetBeans and doesn't go over how to do the same compilation processes from the command line, and basically glosses over what the IDE is doing for you in the background. A crime in my opinion because someone who truly is a newbie with no prior experience really wouldn't grasp the behind-the-scenes aspects. As far as syntax goes, I think its far better to get frustrated over your program not compiling due to a syntax error (left out a semi-colon for example) when your a newbie which would force you to interpret the jdk's error output and find/correct the problem on your own than it is for an IDE to just do it for you when you are learning. I think this will reinforce the importance of syntax a lot faster than just glossing over it.

    I'm not advocating that seasoned pro's who are writing large programs use a text editor -- i'm advocating that they know how to use a text editor in the event that their IDE isn't available - and that all newbies start with a text editor to learn from before progressing to an IDE.

    Just my two-cents :-P (I love stiring debate -- especially about text vs IDE editors... hehe).

    figured eclipse would be on top. Although netbeans is way up there.

    I used NetBeans for several months until I realized how much better Eclipse is.

    I am using NetBeans simply because that is what the class that I am taking is using. I figure I have enough to do to learn the language without the added difficulty of converting what the class is doing into what I would be doing using either a plain editor or another IDE. Also, I guess that I have been spoiled by using the Microsoft IDEs in the past for C and Visual Basic. I still also have nightmares about the short time the spent doing C on Unix with the "joy" of makefiles.

    that depends on.. for a small task I use notepad++ on win or gedit on lin. the main point is that the editor supports a highlighting function. For a project I use eclipse.

    I'm using Eclipse. I think It's very useful,customizable. It have a lot of useful plugins. (Subclipse, Window Builder, CheckStyle etc.) When I start to coding Java, I used NetBeans IDE but now I'm happy with Eclipse. :)

    I'm using BlueJ because I used it when I first learnt Java and I'm very comfortable with it...

    i have switched to Eclipse for our project work , much more trouble then with sublime and slower is my impression after 1 week of use.
    Hopefully it will get better.

    I personally use Jgrasp, and this is because we started programming at school using that, so i am used to it.
