- The term IDE refers to the software used to write programs…in an environment that supports a text editor…that we'll use for writing our code,…a compiler, which converts the code to machine language,…or when you're talking about Java, to byte code.…It usually includes a debugger and a runtime environment…that's used to test your program execution.…Some IDEs also offer intelligent code assistance…referred to as IntelliSense.…Kind of reminds me of Spell Check in Microsoft Word.…
An IDE is not required to program in Java.…Some programmers prefer to write code…in a separate text editor,…compile the code using the Java C compiler,…and then testing the program from the DOS prompt.…For this series we will be using the NetBeans IDE,…although I will give you one example…of how to write a program and compile it…using the DOS prompt.…When we start NetBeans,…it will automatically open to a start page.…From this page we have the option…of taking our tour, trying a sample project,…reading the latest NetBeans news,…or visiting the community corner.…
