    As a newbie to Java Notepad++ is quite good. Basically it highlighted all key words and it's really helpful to deal with them. And also it colored syntax in different way. When you get familiar with it can be so easy to work with.

    And also may be your professor recommended it, because he may be going to use it in that class. So at the beginning it's better to move with your professor even on the IDE.

    Keep in mind that, not to stick with such a low level IDE. Because in later when you deal with a larger projects, use of an advanced IDE is much easy to work. :)

    I use BlueJ, I like it because it is pretty quick and simple, not flashy and very easy to adjust.
    I do have some problems with it though, the help function is useless, with more often then not simply stating what the error said in a different way. There are also times when an error randomly appears when I compile but then later, without making any changes I compile and the error is gone, can get very irritating.
    The main reason I use it is really just because in school I have to use it so I use it at home, I guess the same with most things, you use the one your used to.

    I use Eclipse, it takes lot of memory but its worth that. For smaller editing i use notepad.

    Eranga and I will stand together to oppose the forces of non-Netbeans users. he he :D However, it appears we are losing to the all mighty Eclipse users. :p A grim fate indeed. :(

    Yes tim, just the see the difference of voting. Seems now both of us going to loss. :(

    But I have one thing, ;) may be most of members didn't know about this. Now we can order a NetBeans starter kit DVD for free.

    Being fairly new to Java, one of the overwhelming aspects is the large number of IDEs. I was using JCreator.....then I started using Eclipse. One day I needed to create a GUI and could not even find the section in Eclipse where I could create a GUI. That was the day I switched to NetBeans - it seems much more polished to me.

    When I was learning PHP I used Notepad - no highlighting, no help, no idea what was HTML, PHP, or MySQL components. To this day I still tell everyone that PHP sucks just because I was not using an IDE and to me it was the most difficult project I had ever done - it was a web page that ran on Linux and displayed information from a MySQL database.

    Life is too short, I think we all need IDEs so our time at the keyboard is as productive as possible.

    Now.....is there a guide anywhere that tells me how to transfer my projects from one IDE to another? For instance, if it was written in Eclipse, how do I load the project into NetBeans? That would be very interesting and useful... :)

    Hi Phil,

    Seems this is quit unusual question for me. ;) This is something like opening an excel document in words. What happened is the data(actually the content) is not supported form one to the other. In some instance it is possible, but I don't know how far it's valuable/possible with each IDEs we used to coding in Java.

    I've use a NetBeans project in Eclipse few years back. That's with the previous version of NetBeans, may be 3.0 or similar version. I've never test with NetBeans 6, which is the version I currently use.

    I am currently using NetBeans and its going fine. Features like auto-complete, renaming, refactoring etc, have been quite useful.

    I have never tried Eclipse before and was wondering how it is? Is it better than NetBeans?
    Can anyone who has tried them both comment on their experience,

    The poll shows Eclipse has twice as many votes? Is it that good?

    Thanks,

    I don't think listing all IDEs here would make it easy to read. Best thing would be to check whether "Other" option gets much votes (in this case it's only 10 votes) and think on expanding the list.

    As you can see for the time being its; Eclipse & Netbeans only seems to be popular.

    I have been using Eclipse for more than 3 years and I really love it. And since it's free you can just download,extract and try. I have tried Netbean as well. I would not compare these two since I have being working more in Eclipse; it would be not be a good comparison. But if you need to clarify anything on Eclipse I would be able to help.

    I've used both IDEs for a long time. NetBeans is the best out of them. It's really nice IDE. Easy to work with.

    Eclipse has a good set of plugins. How about Netbeans?

    I prefer the NetBeans IDE for development in Java. I like the online tutorials available for NetBeans. Another reason for me using NetBeans is I started developing java in BlueJ (TIP: it's great for starters). There is a version of NetBeans which is compatible with BleuJ. I don't use the GUI-designer at all, don't like losing control of my code. That's something I don't like...

    I usually use Eclipse and Notepad++ for something smaller, just so I can use the syntax highlighter. :)

    Eclipse, because I`m pretty new to Java and corrects my stupid mistakes. :D
