I'd like your opinion/help please

Posted by Ferret on Dec. 7, 2009, 6:09 p.m.

My trial for JCreator ran out and I really want to continue practicing Java. I'd like to get back into C++ as well and even try some other programing languages. I downloaded something called "eclipse" and its pretty confusing and I think I set it up wrong. Does anyone know of an easy free or cheap programming software that runs along the lines of JCreator or BorlandC++? Thank you.

What are you really doing with Java? You probably don't need awesome tools, I bet Notepad++ would be enough

Games on Java applets, nothing too complex at the moment. I did look at the Notepad++ site before and could not find the main download, it all seemed to be add-ons or tools…

(Edit after seeing Cyrus's comment: I suppose I can work on it and learn how to use it, but I'd like to know what you guys use or would suggest)

Edit again: Nvm, I found another site with the NP++ installer, but again I would still like to hear your opinion ;)

Maybe NetBeans?

Another vote for NetBeans here.

I 2nd Cyrus, I've only used Eclipse (for java), but it seems a fine option.

I'd prefer no IDE at all. I write java code in notepad and compile via command line. But hey, that's just me.

I've been looking into Java recently too, Netbeans with the mobility has a game creating package and theres a good amount of docs out there. I haven't played with the IDEs much either.
