Would like to know which editor or IDE is the most popular for a starter. I have been using JPADPro but have some problems to run the programs after compilation.
What I am looking for is a simple IDE to compile and RUN the program smoothly and it doesn't have to be sophisticated.
Thanks.

Hi, have u tried Ultraedit? its a very good editor that u can configure for Java
you can download it from
http://www.ultraedit.com/
and here is a link where i learned to configure it for java
http://www.tcs.auckland.ac.nz/~angela/teaching/help/UEdit/
there are a lot of more sophisticated IDE's, like Forte, Visual Age, JBuilder, Together Control Center but can be a little bit more complicated in the beginning at least

Hello,

JCreator is a nice and simple Java editor with project compiling and running ability. A free version is available, as well as JCreator Pro with a few extra features built in.
Good Luck,

Actualy we have a whole forum to discuss this stuff here .
If you want simple and easy then TextPad is nice.
There is an open source editor at jedit.org
I have heard that kawa is nice.
For learning java - notepad or wordpad is good .
I will move this to the IDE forum and see if they have any advice for you.

I've actually stuck with JCreator LE for awhile now. It's lightweight and intuitive. Doesn't have all the bells and whistles that some others may have, but that's the way I like it

Though habituated with Command Prompt + Notepad, i prefer now TextPad for small/medium codes and Forte For Java, Community Edition (as its free) for bigger ones....
