    Hi All,

    I haven't touched Java since uni (11 years ago) when I was using JBuilder, NetBeans and BlueJ. I didn't really connect with it at first and just scraped by.

    Just found some of my old text books and fancy giving it another shot.

    Any new IDEs I should be aware of, or is NetBeans still de facto?


    Thanks in advance.
    Nicky

    There is also Eclipse but have not used it. Intend to study Java 7 in more details as I used Delphi at Uni 11 years ago, so I got hold of Sams teach yourself java in 24hours to start off and have used the latest Netbeans so far. Seems a good IDE so fars..

    I prefer Eclipse although IntelliJ is ok, not a fan of Netbeans but its supposed to be decent.

    You want Eclipse, it's free! The other one that is quite good is netbeans. Both good IDE's.
