ProgrammingThis forum is for all programming questions.
The question does not have to be directly related to Linux and any language is fair game.

Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

I'd think that (in the long term) you'd be happier with emacs, since it's an IDE for (almost) all languages, and you can extend it. It's also a newsreader, web browser, coffeemaker (okay, maybe not) and you can play tetris in it. Basically, why settle for a program that does only java, when you can have a program that does _everything_?
I'm nut sure about that. Emacs is an excellent example of something I wouldn't recommend to my worst enemy. First, the learning curve is so steep I wouldn't want even him to suffer that much. But if he survives that, he has a tool so powerful he might outperform me :-)
kees-jan:Thank you buddy!!cuz i am still a crawler in java, i think i better take your advice
jonaskoelker:Thank you to you jona.. for your reply on my matter. I think i will use an ide which will give me more help until for sometime. Then when i am sure of what i'm doing then i will switch to emacs.
