I was wondering if anyone knew a better command prompt program that runs on Windows 7 32-bit. My main complaint with the command prompt that comes with Windows is it's apparent lack of a way to tell it to "Always on top". If there is a way to do this with the regular command prompt that would be great, otherwise I was wondering if there was another program that would do it. Thanks!

And this has to do with Java...how?

Fact is, on Windows, I think it's the only one you've got unless you want to trawl for 3rd party solutions. You might try Googling for something like "Windows terminal programs". Alternatively, there are likely a truckload of telnet clients out there, but you might need to tweak them a bit.

What is so nice about the post? The question was what has command prompts have to do with Java? and the answer was some link to a discussion that the command line should be used versus an IDE. This tells us that the OP may not know the difference -- or more likely, that the OP doesn't care about the topic enough to figure out where to put the topic.

Erm...and I'm supposed to be some sort of mindreader? Sorry, but my Vulcan powers are somewhat diminished at the moment.

Anyway, hopefully you found something useful in my post.

If you want better tools inside the window, then CygWin is worth checking out. It's always the first thing I install when forced to work with Windows. It seems like your problem is with Windows' windows manager though, not the command prompt per se. A quick Google suggests that a utility called Always On Top would take care of that for you.
