This week's book giveaway is in the OCAJP 8 forum. We're giving away four copies of OCA Java SE 8 Programmer I Study Guide and have Edward Finegan & Robert Liguori on-line! See this thread for details.
codewarrior is a great ide. My school uses it and I use it at home and find it to make the experience quite enjoyable. check it out at http://www.metrowerks.com/ If you are a student you can get the learning edition(pretty much the normal version) for like 50 bucks at educational software stores.
Just heard about bluej, though haven't used it yet. Apparently designed specifically for learning Java, may not be too good for big projects... It's free and some folks like it a lot. http://www.bluej.org/ There's a few more listed on apple's page: http://developer.apple.com/java/javaintro/tools.html Pauline [This message has been edited by Pauline McNamara (edited November 30, 2001).]
