Hello People, I am trying to find out an IDE which just provides simple text editor feature and an option to debug like setting breakpoints, stepping into, stepping over so that I can know how the control flow is taking place and what my program is doing. What I see till now is heavy IDE with lots of features which don't help in learning the language. So please advice. Thanks
They're all the same, they all automatically do the things you don't want them to but won't automate the things you could train monkeys to do. You just gotta try one and hope it doesn't annoy you too much
Nick, I would also recommend Eclipse. You can start out using it as an editor/debugger. Eclipse doesn't force you to use it's features. You can even turn off some. As you feel more comfortable with the language, you can start using features.
For example, after a while you will know how to write getters/setters like the back of your hand. At that point, you can start using Eclipse to generate them.
