Hello,

In university I'm enrolled in a programming course in which I'm learning Java. Over there the computers have JCreator installed (and I'm using it on my Windows PC). I've been trying to look for a similar program for Linux but with not much luck.

What I liked about JCreator is that it was pretty simple for a beginner like myself, after installing Eclipse and Netbeans on Ubuntu I noticed that I couldn't just name the file, code and compile. Instead I had to create a project which complicated things a bit (importing files done in uni to Eclipse or NB caused some problems).

I then went ahead and installed Anjuta, it was pretty close to JCreator, compiling works but I couldn't run the file (I'm guessing the auto indentation and auto inserting brackets and curly braces etc... could be tweaked to be automated?).

So if anyone knows a pretty simple Java editor for pretty much a beginner that works similar to JCreator please post :) !

Thanks

Nothing wrong with it, it just seemed a bit complicated. For example, I couldn't just simply open the Java files and edit them (the "Open File" was greyed out), so I was looking for something similar to an editor that can compile and run without it being part of a project.
