Any Java Programmers?

Postby joelamosobadiah » Wed Jan 17, 2007 12:10 pm

I am starting an intro to Java Programming course in college and I needed some quick advice. Which is the best Java editor in you opinion. I have the option of choosing jEdit, jCreator LE, jGRASP, or Sun ONE Studio 4. Is one better than another or does it matter? I want to get started on a good one so I don't try and switch down the line. ;-D

Thanks for your help guys. :-)

I've messed around with Java a few times, but all of my programming is done primarily in either PL/SQL stored procedures or in a 4GL language called Uniface. I like programming, but I don't like it enough to do it in my free time, which means the only programming languages I learn are the ones I have to. Eventually, we'll be doing a re-write in a web based platform, so maybe then I'll be able to help you.

Yeah, all the programs I mentioned are free with my textbook. ;-D

But form what I have read, jEdit is the best and it is free online as well. ;-D

i personally always preferred dealing with DBs. I am considering getting a certification or two. I was pretty good in SQL when i was doing it a few years ago. what certs do you have, or would you recommend? i'm looking at oracle 10 or 9. not sure exactly what i want to do yet. but at some point i would like to be a DBA.

We're on Oracle 9i. Where I design any database changes our application uses including table/column names, indexes and constraints, we have a separate database group that actually implements those changes. I know a lot about relational databases, but from a developer's perspective, not a DBA's.
