Hey Guys, i'm new around here, but i've been doing java for two years or so... anyways, I was writing a java program the past couple of weeks when I realized that I wanted a program that was a bit less processor intensive than an IDE, but a little bit more user friendly than just using the javac CLI. So after I finished the project I was working on,
which is free and open source on googlecode
I began working on an IDE type thing (in Cocoa / Obj-C) that some people might find useful. It basically keeps track of all of your source files, all of your class files, and all of your project resources (sounds/images/db's/etc.), and allows you to quickly build and run your program with only the click of a button. To add a library to it, all you have to do is drag the jar file into the main window of the program and it'll be added to that project instantly. Same for resources and source code files. Then, you're free to edit the source code files as you wish, instead of using some bulky built in editor.
Anyways, if you find it useful, here it is, free and open source as well
comment back if you have any suggestions for the application, which is currently only available for OSX (this particular build is compiled for 10.7.4, but should work on all 10.7.*. If you try it out, let me know how it goes for you! It's constantly being updated (I push up new source every day or so to the git repository, and upload a new build every now and then when it's particularly stable) But lemme know how it is! Thanks guys.
