HI,
I am learning Java. I found this great IDE for beginners like myself. BlueJ. It is very easy to use. It allows you to concentrate on Java and not on the ide like Eclipse. If your new to java this is the way to go. Check it out. This link is a tutorial. https://bluej.org/tutorial/tutorial-201.pdf. This link is for the ide. https://bluej.org/

I hate BlueJ, which I used a long time ago. After about ten years, I stopped worrying about it quite so much. I hate it.
Yes, it is simpler to use than Eclipse, but it had other minuses. It only showed one compiler error at a time and didn't give any explanation. It handled packages badly. It allowed me to see the structure of an object, but Eclipse did that just as well. It didn't use a main() method, so you have to learn that whenever you move off BlueJ.

10 years ago is a long time in the software world. There has been lots of improvement since then.

I thought you would disagree with me I am beyond the stage where I should need BlueJ, but it is good to hear the product has been improved.
