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 am new to Java and I have came across couple of IDE's for java for ex Wsad, Netbeans, and Eclipse etc. Which IDE is in great demand for jobs ? Is it a good idea to use IDE or run programs on command line?
I agree with the others that it's best to first learn Java using a simple text editor and the command line to compile. That way you can concentrate on learning Java; if you have to learn Java and also how the IDE works at the same time, it can quickly become overwhelming.
