Does someone know how to install Jedit?.. I don't see the .exe file. How to install it?
Thanks a lot

Apparently there is a jedit322install.jar that comes with it that installs it in windows.
The instructions are right on the download page:

To install jEdit, open an MS-DOS prompt (Start->Programs->MS-DOS Prompt), and enter the following commands:
cd directory where you downloaded the JAR file
java -jar filename.jar
For example, if you downloaded jedit32install.jar into C:\Downloads, you would enter:
cd C:\Downloads
java -jar jedit32install.jar
If for whatever reason you want to start the installer in text-only mode, specify text as the last parameter on the command line. In text only mode, the installer will not display it's GUI, and instead it will ask questions in the MS-DOS prompt.
