Thanks for the suggesions.Using IDE is fine,we cant even think of a development without using IDE.But again there are several possibilities like...
* Use of IDE itself,using IDE to build the project.
* Use of IDE with Ant,using Ant to build the project.
* Use of IDE with Maven,using Maven to build the project.
I am more inclined towards using Maven as a build tool rather than Ant.I think its on personal discretion,what one chooses,still interested to know what SCJD aspirants chooses.
