Editor for Java programming language.


I try jEdit, but I don't like that when you open many files, you use combo box to select the opening files instead of using tabs.

And can you suggest a editor you think is good for writing codes like Java, C and C++?

I always use Vim, but it's not everyone's cuppa tea. There are lots of different code editors, though; try a few out and see what you like.

Hi, I use vim sometimes. I just don't know how you guys can switch between 10 opening files in vim. In most editors, you simply just click the tab will do.

I like NetBeans

it is written in Java, so it is cross platform. so if you use more than one operating system then it is the same environment no matter what.

it allows you to open as many files as your heart desires, with convenient little tabs to switch.

you can also setup projects and other fancy things.

it also includes code completion! where when you use the dot operator all the choices come up.

and you can set it to underline your mistakes as you go, microsoft word style. i like this, some don't

I always use nedit or vim. Neither is specific to any programming language, but they both have syntax highlighting. Nedit's syntax highlighting is quite thorough, so if a line doesn't get highlighted in the manner I would expect, I know I've made a mistake

I generally use Emacs, but like wapcaplet said, it is not everyone's cup of tea. But specifically for java, both Eclipse and Netbeans are very good. Try them out!

Use Eclipse. It is a wonderful IDE that I use. It is also IBM's preffered IDE.

Whew, I can barely keep my head on straight when I'm working on two source files at once, let alone 10. But there are features for doing it in Vim - you can put other open files in the background, so to speak, and switch between them. Not a feature I use though. I try to program one file at a time

It is not efficient, is it? You have to quick and vim filename, and sometimes the file is in another directory. Why not try some IDE though?

Thank all of you response.

For Eclipse, it has Linux(x86/Motif) and Linux(x86/GTK2), so which one I should download?

If you have GTK+ (GNOME) installed, go for it. Otherwise go for the motif one.

I am trying Eclipse now.
It is a little bit strange that I can't find where I can open an exist Java file. Do I have to create a project? Am I allowed to edit a single Java file?
