Can Anyone Recommend Me a Good Java Editor?
Hi, I am a newbie in Java and just started learning Java. From the book I am reading at this moment I informed that unfortunately Java has no editor like C and C++ have. I am very familiar with C and I used Turbo C/C++ compiler to compile, debug, make exe files etc.
Now my question is, is there any Java editor which can provide all necessary features like Turbo C/C++? Expert Java programmers an you please share your insight?

I like the Eclipse editor personally.
By the way, Turbo C has a nice IDE, but that's about the only thing good about it. The compiler itself is outdated, non-standard and produces executables for an obsolete OS. You shouldn't use Turbo C to learn C or C++ programming.
If you're used to the Turbo C editor, you might find eclipse a little different initially, but shouldn't take you too long to get used to it.
