    Java Programming at School
    -Hi All-

    I'm programming Java @ school, and i need to install JDK on my MacBook.

    I installed this:

    http://www.apple.com/support/downloa...4release5.html

    Is it the correct one ?

    If so, i'm using Eclipse for programming. What else do i need to do to compile and run my programs ??

    Btw, any good tool for programming in Java, something like Notepad++ ??

    Thanks for the help

    TextMate is a commercial software but its great for editing. If you are willing to spend some time on the Terminal, try Vim for Emacs.

    Truly all you need is a text editor and the terminal, but Eclipse will certainly make Java development quicker, and more enjoyable. You might (will) also want to download the Java API documentation to help you with development and further your Java understanding.

    Great, so, if you say that it works on terminal ( it's like DOS ), if i write on a text editor, save as .java, how can i compile and run on terminal for testing purpose ?

    javac MyClass.java (to compile)

    java MyClass (to execute)
