    Default Introduction + Question

    Hello everybody!

    My name is Mike, I'm from Staffanstorp (Sweden) and I just joined the forum.
    I took a course in java programming 10 years ago. During that course we didn't write the code in a .txt file, we used a software with color coded different functions and classes to make it easier to keep track which code pertained to which section. Are there any free java programming help softwares that you can recommend?

    Thanks you!

    I assume you are wanting suggestions for an IDE. The most commonly used IDEs in business are Eclipse (Eclipse - The Eclipse Foundation open source community website.) and Netbeans (Welcome to NetBeans). I know Eclipse will help you as you code (such as suggesting methods to use), and I think Netbeans does also.

    If you were wanting an IDE that will provide you with a lot of help, I would suggest Eclipse.

    However, if you want an IDE that will leave you entirely alone while you code and provide you with no recommendations or assistance, I would suggest JCreator (http://www.jcreator.com/).

    All of these IDEs are Free.

    When asking for help, please follow these guidelines to receive better and more prompt help:
    1. Put your code in Java Tags. To do this, put [highlight=java] before your code and [/highlight] after your code.
    2. Give full details of errors and provide us with as much information about the situation as possible.
    3. Give us an example of what the output should look like when done correctly.
