Hi,
Everytime, I type a Java program, I do it on Notepad. Is there an editor for Java that I can download from the net? I am asking this coz if I use an editor, then the no of compilation errors will drastically come down.

Hi Rukmani,
The MKIDesign site has a free editor
SynEdit that works fairly well. There's also a shareware editor TextPad
that many people use (can't remember the site address off hand but a search in google.com should turn it up)
Hope that helps.

You can also use KAWA IDE 4.01a on www.tek-tools.com, I think it is very good. But you should crack it (www.astalavista.box.sk), it is only a trial version.
Or you try the JBuilder from Borland, but I never use it before.
Bye

Dear Rukmani,
Please do not shun compilation errors as they greatly help you develop the power for scanning your program and picking faults. A must...........if you want to go for scjp2.
Write your program in DOS and compile using javac command on console.

Textpad can be found at http://www.textpad.com and is fantastic! You can also use it to compile and run your application.
