Hi Maged, You could try and run JCreator under wine. Googleing around, there seem to be quite a few people who have done this without problems. Alternatively, you could look at one of the IDEs that is written in Java. I use JBuilder on my Redhat 7.2 system, and I am very happy with it - the personal edition is free. Another alternatives are the Sun IDE (I think it has been renamed recently to SunOne Studio) You could also look at Eclipse which is completely open source, and I think it is supposed to be an IDE for any language. I know nothing about it though. And then there is Oracle's IDE JDeveloper. You can download Oracle and / or the Oracle tools for free if you are using them for personal education. From memory it had a really nice integration with the database (surprise, surprise ) Regards Andrew
Hi Maged, I believe that you could use wine,the problem is most likely,is that you use recent distribution<like RedHat 9, Mandrake 9.1 or something else with glibc 2.3,and wine is compiled with glibc 2.2 - so you can instal older glibc on your system,however be sure to install it in separate directory,for example /usr/local/lib/libc/ and in case of rpm based distro,use -ivh --nodeps --force and then set LD_LIBRARY_PATH variable to point to your glibc2.2.> Also,be careful not to "upgrade" your glibc,I mean -U option in rpm - this will break your system. And check the codeweavers crossover - it will work right "out of the box" so to speak and they offer free trial version.
Hello, In my humble opinion, eclipse is not only the best open source IDE, it is one of the best IDE's period! Of course I am saying this because I was weened on IBM's Visual Age, and eclipse has a similar features and look. check it out at www.eclipse.org Good luck Robert
