I have JBuilder but its seems to add a dependency package. Is it better to perhaps to use a text editor I have found one that has built in Macros to allow compiling directly in the text GUI.I have found that applications can display a different behavior if not runned on a system without JBuilder. Any suggestions???

Thanks Ray

Hi,
I use JBuilder 3 Professional too. It does add a few dependancy files but I've found Jbuilder to be an invaluable tool while debugging the assignment. You could always delete the dependancy files later on. However I've never come across the problem that you describe when you run the app on a different system where JBuilder is not installed. Could you please elaborate?

With warm regards
Abhijeet

For Example,
I wrote an application jdbc database when a customer serches the database a wait cursor is displayed, and when the process of searching or updating a database is finished the hour glass disappears, but when i run on a different computer without JBuilder Pro 3 for example I run the java file from dos not JBuilder my wait cursor never gos away when i do an update or search..I would like to continue using this product as you said the IDE is great for debugging and organizing your files.If you delete the dependency file will everything be ok? I know in my instuctions for my fly by night assignment sun specifys no residual dependency on a IDE. Also one question The manifest that came with my assignment states JDK 1.2.2 Manifest-Version 1.0 should i use this jdk version or can I use 1.3.0. If I have to use this version jdk1.2.2 how do I get JBuilder to point to JDK1.2.2?
THanks Alot Ray
