    IMHO, beginners should use a basic text editor to write code and the command line to compile and run it.

    But if you ignore that advice, this question has been discussed to death in almost every programming forum you care to visit, and the discussion is pointless. The answer is, whichever one you prefer. If you're going to use an IDE, try them all and decide for yourself which one is better, based primarily on which one you like better.

    Hi,

    Don't use IDE until you learn basics. If you use IDE means you may not able to remember the static methods, import statments, some API's. So better way is using notepad is best to learn.

    Thanks,
