Hi There,

I am new to Java and I have came across couple of IDE's for java for ex Wsad, Netbeans, and Eclipse etc. Which IDE is in great demand for jobs ? Is it a good idea to use IDE or run programs on command line?

Thanks for helping out!

Aru

If you are learning Java, then you should work with the command line until you understand the details that IDEs can hide from you. For example, working with packages.

When an IDE mades sense, Eclipse is a good free choice.

Note that we have a forum just for IDE discussion. I'll move this for you.

I agree with the others that it's best to first learn Java using a simple text editor and the command line to compile. That way you can concentrate on learning Java; if you have to learn Java and also how the IDE works at the same time, it can quickly become overwhelming.

Eclipse and NetBeans are the two most used, free Java IDE's. IntelliJ IDEA is also quite popular, but not free.
