Hi all,
Is it a good idea to format the code using Jalopy and CheckStyle?
Thanks Chris

Hi Chris,
Is it a good idea to format the code using Jalopy and CheckStyle?

I think so. As I use JBuilder 9 Personal as editor, I use Jalopy in its JBuilder add-on form, and it's great. It's so easy to follow SUN's code formatting conventions with Jalopy : just a Shift+F10 key press and the whole file I am editing is formatted in a consistent way. Simply great.
Best,
Phil.

Some of you might also be interested in the IntelliJ editor.
You can get an early access version after registering
EAP IntelliJ
As far as I am concerned, this is easily the best Java editor out there, and I've tried them all.

I also used to be a JBuilder fan. Then I found Eclipse and never looked back (plus it is free ).

Hi Filip and Chris,
I'll have a look to both products then. I tried SUN One Studio before JBuilder 9 but found myself quite more productive in JB9. BTW Chris, JB 9 Personal (the version I use) is free too .
Best,
Phil.
