I just sign up for SCJD. Just wondering which editor everyone is using to comply with the 65 chars per line I read in K&B?

What about NetBeans?
I switched to it from Eclipse.
New version (Version 5.5) just released.

There are plenty of options out there, comercial and free.

Some free IDEs are:

  • Eclipse
  • Netbeans
  • Oracle JDeveloper
  • Sun Java Studio

  • Some free Editors are:
  • JEdit
  • Jext
  • Gel
  • Programmers Notepad

  • You can do any of those, pick the one you feel more confortable with.

    Is everyone sticking to this 65-70 chars per line? Would you get points deducted? I don't want points deducted for silly reasons. BTW, I look at some of the source code samples in the jdk distribution using JEdit and some lines are way longer than 90 chars.

    NetBeans (and other popular IDEs) seems to conform to Code Conventions for the Java Programming Language.
    (See http://java.sun.com/docs/codeconv/html/CodeConvTOC.doc.html)

    Yes, NetBeans shows a vertical line along the 80th column in the editor.

    From Sun's code conventions doc:


    ...
    4.1 Line Length
    Avoid lines longer than 80 characters, since they're not handled well by many terminals and tools.
