a lot of Java IDE out there … hmm, quite a knocking down for me.
don’t get me wrong. there are good Java IDE tools out there, and surely, NetBeans, Eclipse, JBuilder, and those vivid eye catching features and screenshots would make me gape in awe.
it’s a pity, the computer resource here is quite limited. now I’m curious, which one should I pick up? and what purpose to use any Java tools out there? for coding, learning, or fancy GUI design?
for a limited resource at my place, using Java Text Editor should be sufficient for a while. I just can’t stand using NetBeans or Eclipse and then I would have ‘non responding’ screen-alike.
I remember back then I used JCreator with a very limited computer specification to make a computer player for Othello, and it was quite a good tool for learning Java.
JCreator is light, it has simple appearance, and especially when you already had source examples or any offline tutorial … perhaps start coding using text editor is still sufficient enough, I believe. well, at least for a ‘hardcore’ coder like me.
well, guys, if you have found out any Java tools out there which is as light as JCreator and the tool would still allow you to have any ‘form designer’ preview, please let me know. thank you for dropping by and posting your comments and / or suggestions.
