    Java question

    Do you know if there is some good Java IDE available?
    I'm using the tools from Sun, but writing code in Notepad sux...

    Do you know of some java forums?
    Perhaps Cprogramming.com should have one, since Java is so closely related to C++.

    Thanks for the quick answer.
    The IDE seems great, though I had to rezip all *.class files, since the CLASSPATH (defined in autoexec.bat) doesn't seem to have any affect when using JCreator.

    Many thanks!

    Gel is an interesting one and it is free.

    I've not used it very much. I usually use general IDE's, which support more than one language. CodeWright is the editor I use most. A good one, but I don't know if there is a free version. Another good IDE which use at home is ConTEXT.

    You should be able to download JBuilder form borland for free....its a great package with loads of features...the best of which is the live syntax checking...

    I use Sun's Forte for Java (CE) at work. I used to use JCreator but when it split into two versions I started looking elsewhere. I liked how small and easy to use it was.
    I used JBuilder at home for a while but after using Forte at work I've really come to like it. I would suggest downloading it from sun. We use version 3 at work, but I run version 4 at home which is now called Sun One Studio.

    The thing I like is they have versions for Windows and *nix OSs so you can use the same tool on each platform.

    When it comes to anything Java related, the Sun site has everything you need.

    Some more forums at java.sun

    http://forum.java.sun.com

    Jcreator is great for java, another one you can check out is Crimson Editor, you have to do a little setup to compile directly in the program, but check out their webstie, and they explain it very clearly.
