    Exclamation Alternatives to CMD ?

    Hi all,

    Im new to java and was wondering if there are programs that can be downloaded and be used instead of cmd

    Ie I want to write the program and run it directly.

    I have downloaded netbeans but it seems to complicated and my programs don't seem to run. Are there any simpler programs

    IF netbeans is exacly the kind of program im looking for (no idea :P) Can you please explain how to use. Links will be appreciated

    Thanks ! :D

    Like I said in your other thread, IDEs such as eclipse or netbeans are what you're talking about. There are a bunch of them, try doing a google search of "java IDE".

    JCreator is another example.

    Any tool you don't spend time with to try and understand it is difficult. Its not a problem of Netbeans that you give up too soon and don't read its documentation. You seem like the type of person that would benefit more from watching videos rather than having to spend time reading, so try youtube for tutorials.

    I suppose youre right. Netbean's interface is a big leap from the simplistic CMD app but I guess in time it will pay off..

    Start with something simpler than. Try our JEdit for syntax highlighting, and then JCreator for a compile and run button. Then when you need more advanced features, try out netbeans, eclipse, or intellij. There are also IDEs geared towards novices (Greenfoot?), but I've never tried them.
