Hello , Is there any other ide available for linux coz forte cannot be download since there are some server problems at sun's site, to my knowledge there are some python scripts which enable enmacs to indent and colour java as well as c++ code. Also which is the better jdk among blackdown,ibm,kaffe,sun. I have been using blackdown also download kaffe but not tried it. thanks, Ryan.
I don't know about Linux IDEs since I use Windows-hosted IDEs (Kawa, Textpad) writing to a shared SAMBA filesystem for all my Linux/Java development. However, I can say that in my server-side experiments, Sun's JDK1.3 for Linux comes out four times faster in execution than Kaffe. I was astonished! I've not bothered with IBMs JDK due to the large number of faults and puzzles I've heard about it, but Blackdown seems a serious contender.
I have download forte for linux and have found problem with forte4j.sh a flag setting "-Xm96xm -Xss1024k" saying that ill-legal argument. By removing the -Xss1024k it gives an exception. I have also tried changing it to "-Xm64xm" coz I have 64mb ram, and also tried removing the "-Xss1023" setting the result is the same.
