does anyone know what the best program is to program with java? Right now I am looking for Visual J++ 6.0, but I heard there were better ones. Any suggestions?

Yes, there is much better and they are FREE -

www.netbeans.org

SUN also has FORTE for java which is FREE but they hide it on their site also, the above basically is FORTE with a nicer GUI.

Depends if you want something simple, or complex. I used JCreator LE, its kind of like notepad, but has some better options, and highlights syntax etc.

You can check it out at downloads.com

//edit:

here is the link to download it, if you are interested.

The JDK is free available from the site of Sun. It is very easy to use.

but you are an idiot :D:D

J++ isn't Java, it's MS's attempt at ripping java off (or at least its first big one).

No, If you are learning Java don't get J++. It does not support all the features of Java. Namely swing.

Use Forte or sun's JDK1.4.1 they are free. Besides when I took training at Sun they use JDK as well.

How does JBuilder rate in your opinion, I just installed it at home and wanna get some java coding done on it. Is it any good?

Is the JDK1.4.1 now called the Java 2se SDK?

I use either Text Pad or Borland JBuilder 6 Personal (free download from Borland's website www.borland.com) - though it is a bit sluggish (it is written in Java afterall), but the real-time syntax error checker is great.

I think that the Borlan JBuilder is nice, try it.

We use Forte (with the Sun JDK) at my work and I've found it very nice. I tried Netbeans at home, but since they're pretty much the same I use Forte at home to since I work with it all day. I actually prefer that IDE over Visual Studio.
I used to use JBuilder (can't stand it) and JCreator (which I liked in Beta stages) but finally settled on Forte. Much like Visual Studio, I didn't like it at first, but now I think it's great.

Forte is slower than my great grandmother. It took 20 freakin minutes to open on my PC
