Like Bigglesworth said, Textpad is using whatever JDK is in your classpath. textpad is just an editor, and it's using the JDK you specified during installation, or the one it finds in your classpath settings.

Hi Angela, I've recently been using blueJ and can highly recommend it as an editor, compiler, debugger and a basic visual object modeller. It was written by teaching staff at Monash University specifically to teach object programming in Java. What I find most impressive is that it's both text-centric and visual. Take a look at the homepage at... www.bluej.org cheerio Rowan
My prefs: Emacs for an IDE -use for Windows or UNIX environments -Integrate with version control systems (CVS, ClearCase, etc) -Integrated shell -Integrated debugging -more commands than you will ever need Jikes (IBM) compiler -faster than javac Also a decent IDE - try JBuilder from Borland. TextPad is a nice editor - I used to use it myself until I got into Emacs.
aaahhhh!!! ANOTHER unix/linux bandwagoneer !?! is Emacs REALLY better than JCreator? or EditPad Classic (for those that just want a very good plain editor)? Or, is this an "I don't like Windows" issue?
if you don't know, then ask. if you do know, then share. love is knowledge.
