IDE advice!!! I am an experienced programmer, but have only done a little Java, mostly with BlueJ. I am gearing up to do some more challenging Java projects requiring a professional strength IDE. Most people I have discussed this with suggest either JBuilder or NetBeans. I installed NB last summer and failed to master it in a day or so of puttzing around. In a couple weeks I plan to dive in and get on top of some IDE. Recommendations? Horror stories? Advice?
The soul is dyed the color of its thoughts. Think only on those things that are in line with your principles and can bear the light of day. The content of your character is your choice. Day by day, what you do is who you become. Your integrity is your destiny - it is the light that guides your way. - Heraclitus
I have tested NetBeans upside down. Found it to be quite capable. Its good at HTML, Core Java (I have not done a lot of J2EE stuff on it) and micro as well. It is cool with UML also. I suggest you to try the new version 6 with all the plugins.
I am sure you will like it.
