    If you use windows, you should write your first java program in notepad.

    If you use Linux, then vi or emacs.

    When you understand java, then consider Forte or if maybe JDE for Emacs.

    I think it is better for you this way, then you aren't married to a tool but understand the principles behind using a tool. It will be easy enough to learn whatever IDE is being used on a job or in a class (visual age, etc.) if you really know what the tool is doing behind the scenes.

    What does java have to do with Frontpage? Not sure I understand your question there. Are you talking about applets?

    TextPad


    TextPad is a decent text editor that also has tools for compiling java classes. You can download an evaluation copy for free at http://www.textpad.com/

    Hope this helps,

    Borland JBuilder Personal Edition, RealJ, and Jext are some pretty good ones.

    I just use UltraEdit to edit and javac to compile... You don't NEED an IDE, any text editor (preferably with syntax highlighting) will do very well for coding and then all you have to do is open a command prompt, go to the directory it's in, and type javac <options> myClass.java

    http://www.ultraedit.com (not free, but you can *cough* download an "extended license" if you can't afford a legal one)

    http://java.sun.com


    Click here and wait. It's a kewl effect, trust me.

    Uhhmm... Open your HelloWorld.java in UE, press F9 and set the command to javac "%f"

    Question new to java... recommended IDE's?


    Hi,

    I'm taking the Java challenge... I code in mostly web-based languages (php, asp, javascript, html (duh), css, yada yada), but am just now starting to get into Java as my first applications-development language.

    Anyhow - I'm down w/ the text editor business (using win notepad), but I am interested in an IDE.

    Any recommendations? Anything out there for Windows 2000 pro that makes Java code more manageable (i.e., text highlighting, auto-tabing, stuff like that)?

    Thanks!!!

    Since a few Days i use FreeBSD, Linux and Windows 2000. My editor of choice is now jEdit (www.jedit.org), as it looks the same on all platforms.

    It has syntax-highlighting and auto-tabbing, among a lot of other usefull tools, however you have to start javac separately.

    Maybe there is even a plugin which can start javac, not sure 'bout that.

    I can't say enough good about UltraEdit! It's the best text editor for Windows. Check it out at http://www.ultraedit.com . And check out all the great things people say about it here:
    http://www.idmcomp.com/discus/

    I plug in my javac.exe and java.exe (and used to use it for the JavaDoc generator, too). I just hit Cntrl-Shift-0 to compile java, and then Cntrl-Shift-1 to execute the .class files. You can set any command line thing you want in the "Tool Configuration". I recently got the free Borland C++ compiler and now i have that pluged in, too.

    It has nice syntax highlighting for Java, C/C++ PHP, XML, whatever...

    You can download a trial (full featured, expiries after 30 days or something) but cracks are easily availabe. I used to get the crack, but I love this program so much that I actually paid up for it... $35.

    If you get it and need help setting up the Tool Configuration, hit me up on ICQ 51589365.

    Good luck

    Here's sort of an extension to the original question:

    What about something that I can use to execute JSP from my web browser, in Win9x, and see the results returned to the browser. In other words, does anyone have any suggestions on some "desktop servers" that would run on WinME?

    I tried Apache and Tomcat, but for some reason, the browser just tries to "download" the file off of my hard drive no matter how I set up Apache (perl files). And forget Tomcat, WinME royally screws that up.

    I also tried installing Apache on Linux, but it kept saying the shell wasn't a valid file?? Alrighty then... I just ls'd it Linux.... but that's another forum (or two)
