This week's book giveaway is in the OCPJP forum. We're giving away four copies of OCA/OCP Java SE 7 Programmer I & II Study Guide and have Kathy Sierra & Bert Bates on-line! See this thread for details.
I also plan to make the switch to Linux within the next month and I am planning to keep using NetBeans as my IDE (www.netbeans.org). ------------------ Chris Stehno (Sun Certified Programmer for the Java 2 Platform)
Hi, You could try using the Linux beta release of Oracle9i JDeveloper, which will be available in a few days on http://otn.oracle.com/products/jdev. This will be the first release of JDeveloper on the Linux platform, so we're really keen to get feedback on how it can be improved. ------------------ Brian Duff Oracle9i JDeveloper Team http://otn.oracle.com/products/jdev

Thank you for your advice. I have been using visual age and db2, but jdeveloper and oracle would be great. I eagerly await my installation.
Patricia, If you want a really nice editor that is supported across multiple platforms, then take a look at Visual SlickEdit. This is what I use to do all my development. I'm a server-side developer, so I don't need to worry about drag-drop GUI components. Anyway, if I was a Swing developer, I would't want to use any tools that generate the code for me. I think most of these tools are end up generating some nasty code. -Peter
