which is the best ide for java programs especially for students
ECLiPSE is good enough once configured
Netbeans too is good but not my taste.
Oracle's JDeveloper. Its free as of June 27th. And it has so many features u gotta try it. Comes integrated with an application server as well. And it supports a lot of the J2EE features.
Borlands JBuilder it works Great, I use it! Netbeans Developer is also good!
Eclipse from http://www.eclipse.org. Its the best and has plugins for C++, etc. So once you get used to the IDE, you can use it over and over again for other developements
If I need to develop enterprise applications then I have to pay for the plugins as they are commercial. JDeveloper is free for even commercial development. It comes with a lot of features such as Enterprise development, deployment to various application servers, UML modelling and so on. You gotta try it and see
I must try since you are recommending it strongly But I am not too much of a Java guy. Learnt it, used it for some time and have almost forgotten it
If you are an ICSE student like I am...BlueJ might help
netBeans is really good. www.netbeans.org
I agree with ashish - ECLiPSE is the best i have ever tried on java.
It isnt good on c/c++ though.
Well another thing ECLiPSE is from IBM.
Well I like it nonethless....
All of the above are good.
anyone here ever used JCreatorLE ???
used eclipse, NetBeans, JCreatorLE.
If you have low end system, stay away from eclipse and NetBeans, both being java based IDE, needs lot more resources.
But if system is fast one with loads of RAM, eclipse is very good.
Anyone tried Forte ????
Forte is now Sun One Studio, which is based on NetBeans and while NetBeans is a freeware, Sun One Studio is __not__ a freeware
.. i've got Forte JDK 4 ... its probably the best i've come across till now .. but the most complicated too ...
I think GEL Java IDE is he best.
