Dear all,
What do you use when develope SCJD assignment?
Now, I am familiar with Eclipse, IDEA, UltraEdit and TextPad.
Could you recommend what is better to use, please?

thanks

Well since the requirement is to write everything by your own hands, I personally don't like using IDEs because I don't want it to generate any code or set classpath by accident and end with an automatic fail.

I use EditPlus. Same deal as TextPad.

I use jEdit, its written in Java, so it's portable, its free, and it has plugins for Ant and CVS. It also has a good error list and does syntax colouring for Java and XML. I used to use TextPad, its faster, but not portable or free.

You make it sound like everything written in Java is portable and free

I use eclipse because that's what I'm used to. I just have to be careful not to use any of the code generation features. I find it really handy for running unit tests. I'm using Ant to build and package my submission.

You can use any IDE, just don't use it to develop the SWING part, what I really mean by that is don't use the graphical designing tools of an IDE< you can still use the IDE to hand code that stuff and be ok without the IDE putting in code that you wouldn't have written.

I use Jedit and JBuilder. Jedit is sometimes a bit of PITA, but as an editer JBuilder is definitely a much better editor, I will not use the IDE though. Both are free.
