Howdy!

Is there an IDE (free/commercial) purely geared towards Game Development in Java a la XNA from MS for VC#?

I know Eclipse/NetBeans/IDEA are general-purpose IDEs.

Thanks.

Not to my knowleadge (although I cant remember if there's an editor in the Java Wireless Toolkit, for J2ME).

Why do you need one? I dont know XNA, so dont know if that has any advantages over Eclipse (which would be the IDE I'd recommend).

Hey Svend!

Well if you havent seen XNA yet, you should ... it's an interesting framework especially for noobs game developers ... but only runs on Windows
