    Looking for some good compilers

    I have DevC++ as my C++ compiler and it's great. Now I'm looking for a compiler with the same type of interface for Java and VB. Does anyone know any good ones?

    even though it's not that great, Dev-C++ remains as my main compiler when i'm not using allegro (90% of the time)...

    I think you have to actually purchase something to get a decent VB/java compiler, but don't quote me on that.

    For Java I use JBuilder and I really like it. It checks for simple errors in your code as you type - for instance missing a ; or a }.

    If you want to go down the free road get JCreator (do a search on Google). This is a free IDE that looks and feels a lot like VC++ (menu wise.....etc). This would then link into the SDK you can get direct from Java.

    Total cost....... FREE.

    For VB, the best option is Microsoft Visual Basic.
    For Java, Borland JBuilder is probably the way to go.
