Looking for easy to use IDE - java


I'm looking for a easy to use Integrated Development Environment for simple homework, I have tried Eclipse, but it turned out to be a little to complicated at lest the short time I did test it, ex did a program that I have wrote in Java that I did know was working turned out to have loads of problems in it because Eclipse was not able to check enum or similar problem. Would be nice if there was something similar to Jgrasp since that is what I use in school, but don't know any package for it, so something similar to Jgrasp would be nice, thanks.

Hmm, I think Eclipse is great but, yes, it does requrie somer prior research. Netbeans is excellent as well, but if Eclipse was too complicated, it won't be an improvement. Perhaps you could use an editor instead: Jedit or Scite.

Jedit don't seem to have a package in Ubuntu but they both look good, but i think there is a other problem when i compile. Can i be that easy that the sdk version that is in ubuntu standard package is a older version, since it's still the same problems. wasen't enum added in version 5? a other possbility is that the programs don't use Latin_1. Is there no way to get Jgrasp working

Yes, enum was introduced by jdk5. Are you sure you installed sun-jdk-5? You have to do so explicitly, by installing from Synaptic Package Manager. You also have to make sure that javac in /etc/alternatives is pointing to your javac in /path/to/jdk5/bin/javac. It is working fine for me. Using be-latin1 myself so that shouldn't have anything to do with it.

I'm afraid I haven' t got a clue about Jgrasp. Looking at their home page should show whether it will run on Linux or not.
