This week's book giveaway is in the OCAJP 8 forum. We're giving away four copies of OCA Java SE 8 Programmer I Study Guide and have Edward Finegan & Robert Liguori on-line! See this thread for details.
Can you recommend a skinny Java IDE for Java? I installed netbeans but its way to big and structured. All I need is an editor that knows and highlights Java syntax and that has commmandline access that I can prime to compile and execute programs.
Thanks. I got geany with a dependency problem, but it seems to work. It wants libcairo2 at a new version.
I wish geany had some commandline/tools that I could load for various types of testing to allow me to stay in one environment and not have to slip in and out of the editor/compiler to be able to test. I guess I could keep a file of commandlines and just copy and paste them into the execute command field as I move thru the various stages of testing and from one program to another.
