Hello Ranchers,

What IDE currently support all Tiger features.

What I heard is:

- Eclipse 3.1 supports partially
- IDEA 4.5 supports, but it's not free

Any other options except Notepad ?

regards,
MZ

I'm using Eclipse 3.1M2 and it seems pretty good with Tiger. I haven't been able to compile enumerated types yet. Do you know what's missing?

Eclipse lags behind in several areas, including enum (which seems to partially work) and varargs.

IDEA's support for J2SE 5.0 has been stellar for some time now. I haven't worked much with other IDEs recently. NetBeans, last I looked, had minimal support for 5.0; maybe that's improved. Someone mentioned that there were a few 'lesser' IDEs with 5.0 support (perhaps jEdit?).

IDE? I use vi, you insensitive clod! It is ALWAYS compatible!

Just kidding, went Slashdot there for a second. :roll:

I'm a masochist -- I still use a text editor (EditPlus) for all my Java coding, although it does support syntax highlighting, projects, tools, and all that good stuff.

I am using some future snapshot of eclipse 3.1 and I have no problems whatsoever.

Interesting. I believe I'm on 3.1M2, which is the latest stable build. I don't venture past the stable builds; they're bad enough with respect to performance. I take it you're grabbing integration builds?

Of course, JBuilder 2005... We can download Enterprise Trial Edition and after it is expired, it will become a foundation edition, with which we can even develop J2SE 5.0 applications...

Hope it helps...

Netbeans 4b2 has full support as well as far as I've tested it (which isn't complete but as Sun ships it with the compiler I'd venture they're happy with it).
