IDE for Applets

Hi,

Can anyone provide some advice as the best IDE to use for the production of Applets. I have looked at JBuilder2 but this produces files which are much too big to put on the Web.
Any suggestions would be much appreciated.

I use JBuilder 2.  Yes, it produces quite a large file if you use the wizard to produce the JAR file.  The way around I've found is to open that jar with WINZIP and manually delete the files you don't need - or better yet, simply unjar it and jar again with compression enabled.

If you don't like JBuilder2 still, I recommend Symantec Visual Cafe for JAVA version 2 or better.  It works great too.

I use a product called 'Kawa' along with SUN Microsystem's Java Development Kit 1.1.6. This is quite a good product because you get to write applets from the ground up without the IDE stuffing unwanted code into your applet . However, you will need to know your Java applet stuff quite well as Kawa does not assist you in coding in any way.

Kawa is available at http://www.tek-tools.com/ 

Conversely, you could write your applets using a text editor and compile it using a command line compiler(JDK is one of them). This, however should be done if you are one of the brave (i'm not!  :)  )
