hi friends,
I have just started preparing for the web component exam
Is it better to use tools to generate codes?


Thanks

Well tools won't generate enough code for you

You will need to know the concepts to effectively use the tool. e.g. even if Netbeans or Eclipse list the methods for you, you will need to know which one you should use. So go ahead with any IDE.


Thanks
Abhishek

I used notepad and command window to compile.

I think using an IDE/tools will automate/hide some stuff that might be important for the exam, like writing the code itself (web.xml), the folder structures of your web projects... etc. Its important to develop code line by line to get a better understanding.

Hi all, this is my first post (sorry if my english is not good enough). I think that a mix of IDE/Notepad can be beneficial for learning: while a raw tool like notepad can help you squeezing your brain, forcing you to remember the sintax of, for example, an API, an IDE can be likewise beneficial to "attach" related actions, like which methods are related to a given class (i think over this as a "helper obiquitous", being "helper" a learning helper, not a productive helper). A third and mighty option is write your code in paper and pencil.

Greetings.
