Find the best IDE (integrated development environment) for coding in Java with this extensive overview of the most popular IDEs: NetBeans, IntelliJ, BlueJ, Eclipse, and JDeveloper.
- [Voiceover] So you wanna do some programming in Java, but there are so many options for integrated development environments you don't know which one to choose. The good news is that they are interoperable in the main functions of coding, auto completion, debugging, etc, are very similar from one to the other. So if you choose one IDE today you can easily switch to another IDE tomorrow or next week or next year. You get the idea. For this series I have chosen a few of the more popular IDEs to demonstrate the process of downloading, installing, and running programs on each.
At the end I will also review a few of the text editors that can also be used to code in Java but they require a little more work to compile and run. Along the way you'll be challenged with writing programs that include all of the features we'll be discussing. So I'm Peggy Fisher and let's get started on our adventure to learn about IDEs for Java.
