I have decided all the programming assignment with a text editor and i will not use an IDE.Since at work i dont have access to a java IDE (I work as a .NET developer)

What do you think??

Can you put your own software tools on your work machine or are you restricted to using what is provided?

Eclipse does not need instalation.
You can run it from a pen drive, for example.
The biggest problem is the JDK.

You shouldn't be working on the assignment on company time anyway
Or if the company lets you, they should also provide you with the (option to install) necessary tools.

Of course you can use any editor you want. There's no requirement to use any specific tool (yet, the way Sun is moving I'd not be surprised if they make use of Netbeans mandatory at some point).

Hi khaled,
Since you are working on .NET platform and if you want to learn java in a short period , it is better to go for Any IDE , like Eclipse or NetBeans.

If you have sufficient time and want to learn the subject , a little slow , then you can go for any text editor . if possible , prefer editplus.

Regards,
Sultan.

hello,

I finished my SCJD assignment within 17 days (download to upload). I used only vim as an editor, the Sun SDK (was called "SDK" back then) and GNU make. The GNU make was because of a very slow CPU and very little RAM - ant was far too slow on that system.

I got 96 % of the maximum score. Here is my report.

hello,

yes, see the report. However, especially for beginners I highly recommend to use a text editor, not an IDE.

If you can use IDE, please do. You don't want to waste time finding out syntax and debugging.
 
I agree. Here's the link: http://aspose.com/file-tools
