Use the command line if you're a beginner

Posted by Gary Snider on July 28, 2000 at 10:12 AM

If you're just starting out, I would recommend using the command line javac and java to compile and run your programs. I usually edit the source code in Wordpad. This way, you can concentrate on the fundamentals and make your own mistakes without having the fancy things an IDE gives you (code completion,syntax highlighting, etc.)
