Dear Mr. Ford,
In your opinion, how would you judge the weight
of the choice of an IDE in the short term with
respect to a longterm strategic choice of one
or the other framework?
In other words, do you think for example that if
a choice is made between JBuilder or Eclipse or
product XYZ, in the long run these might be a
means of guiding implementation choices.
Thanks again,
Gian Franco

The IDE shouldn't make much difference (and, if you find one that does, ditch it!). Most of the modern Java IDE's have realized that they must adhere to standards or they will be left behind. Certainly, JBuilder and Eclipse do a good job of making life easier without backing you into a proprietary corner.
