    Just thought it'd be cool to get an idea of what the members here are using for editors/IDEs. Vote for your most frequently used editor/IDE and if it's not listed here(10 is the max :(), feel free to check other(but please post about it). Have fun!

    As requested, this is a growing list of the aforementioned tools for you to compare and examine.

    First of all, this is a great work Captain. This can be really helpful to people who worried to select an IDE for coding in Java. And also I would like to make a request from users who answering/voting to this thread. Make a small comment here why you use that IDE you are voting. :)

    Ok, here is my comment.

    When I start to learn Java, I use Notepad and the Command Prompt. I don't want to say how it is terrible. Each and every character need to type. And the miss-spelling, oh god, it's really terrible.

    Because of that I move to IntelliJ IDEA. It's not bad actually. Why I avoid is, used much resources on my PC. It need a large memory. But there some nice plugins available. I use one plugin for AJAX for one of my project, really nice. I'm not remember the name, but IDEA users may know that, after adding it an icon with a spider can be found in the debug tool bar.

    Now I working with Netbeans. Used low resource of my PC. Easy to create GUI. But I feel one difficulties on creating GUIs. Sometimes I can't align controls reference to each other. May be there is a way. But still I don't have find a way.

    I guess i can increase that limit. Do you think we will need more than 10 options on the polls?

    I think it's better if we can list all the possible IDEs here :) Isn't it?

    No problem mate. I wanted to include like 3-4 more... maybe 15 would be a good limit. Maybe when we hear from other members about their IDE/Editor not listed we can up the limit.

    Hey captain, where is your vote

    Hahah, I wanted to give others a change before I thwarted it.. Now that some have voted I'll throw in my vote shortly. ;)

    Good point... JavaTip want to up it? :)

    Hmm.... maybe I'm checking too soon.. but when I tried to "Edit Poll", I only saw two "Additional Options" and 10 was still the max of regular "Options". :(

    Hmm.. it appears I can't add more options... but I can create a new poll with the new 20 max... If anyone wants me to recreate this thread with the new max let me know and I'll throw it up.... unless Java Tip has a fix for adding to the already created options... ?

    I tried that. Those "Additional Options" are the way to add new ones. Try that. Once you add an additional, it will be 11th option.

    Excellent! thank you sir.
    I updated it to 40. I think more than 40 will not look good.

    And another suggestion is JCreator.

    By the way, i recommend Captain to keep a list of urls to these IDEs in his first post. This will help newbie to find their websites faster.

    Captain, I think you meant "Emacs", not "Emac".

    Vi and Textpad can be other options.

    good idea by Java Tip

    Captain please provide the URL of IDEs so that we can compare the IDEs and will help to choose better one.

    Yea.. so continuing with the theme of this thread... I originally started with Emacs back when I first started to learn C and C++. Often, I would jump around to Gedit which is a Unix/Linux text editor and is comparable with Wordpad/Notepad(I'll add KDevelop to the list). As I went through C++ I grew to love Visual Studio. After taking a course in C++ with an intro to Java I fell in love with Netbeans which is now my primary mode of development. Often times though if Netbeans is not already loaded, I will without hesitation use Gedit or Wordpad(maybe I need to test a fellow member's snippet, for example). I found Visual J# didn't meet my needs IDE-wise so I dropped that, and when I committed myself to being a Java Developer, I no longer had an interest in the Visual(M$) way of things.

    The command prompt is a must when working in Linux and wasn't mentioned as it's not technically an editor or integrated development environment, but nevertheless has become second nature to most developers.

    I'm not a fan really of the GUI developer for Netbeans because of the old layout manager it's stubborn on not changing. If I need to develop a GUI and I have the time, I'll pick apart the layout manager and integrate it with my code because it tends to be spot on even though it's a pain to work with.
