I have used Java long time back in DOS
using JDK. Now, when I try to use it back, I don't remember how I used it in
DOS. Besides that, I tried downloading NetBeans but I don't understand how to
use it.

well, i find jpad to be the best.


there is also textpad. www.textpad.com both are lightweight editors,
which i prefer compared to bulky jbuilder/together/netbeans.

Its just a matter of preferance. textpad/jpad do not generate code for
you. they dont even have method popups, but why would you want those?

you hit the nail on the head when you said you didnt know how to use
netbeans, code generators take a while to learn, you also have the
hassle of creating project files.

give jpad a go, its not freeware but there is a trial version. dont
buy it until you have given it a good test and compared it to other

also give linux a look, there are a wealth of over 1,000 text editors
for linux, so you cant complain about lack of choice!

I'm currently using NetBeans IDE version, wait let me look it up...

<5 minutes later>

Ok, version 3.4.1
Now my problem is that it runs VEEERRRYYY slowly on my computer,
which is strange because i have a 2800+ Athlon with 256 DDR333 ram. I
was wondering if any one else has experienced this as well and if
they found a way to speed it up. Another thing is that it looks like
its built with Swing. Is it, ot is the theme just like that.

I asked my one friend about this and he said that it looks asif it
was ported from Linux. So he says the slowness is due to bad porting,
any other ideas?

And no, I do NOT want any comments on other, better, cheaper IDEs. I
like what I'm using thank you very much, so don't go spamming the
list again on my behalf.

I think you can look no further than memory. For
WSAD, you need about 1 GB of memory, eclipse you can
probably get by with 512 MB with a lot of plugins.
256 MB seems awful low to me, but I am not familiar
with NetBeans.

I was wondering was there a Uml and a gui building option
in NetBeans.
