Hello, everybody, im developing C# for over 5 years, done a bit of everything.. basic systems, webspider with webclient/httpwebrequest, hr systems.. and such..

I have seen a little of Java only at university, but it was a very basic thing..

What i would like to ask is, what is the most used IDE for java today (eclipse/netbeans/etc), also, on most places is it linux or windows (if linux what would be the usual distro?), what would be the most used frameworks/etc..

and to finish, what would be a good learning place for java ? books etc ?

1. Eclipse and IntelliJ Idea
2. Mostly windows. (My personal view)
3. mostly used Framework depends on what kind of application you have. Its too generic question.

Hi,

Following is the answer according to me.

Ans 1 : Eclipse is the most used IDE for java. Once, you are comfort with java you can try NetBeans, IntellijIdea, JDeveloper.

Ans 2 : Java is the OS independent language, so every framework for java will work on any OS.

Ans 3 : You can start with the following books.
             a. Thinking in Java
             b. Java Complete Reference

Most popular IDE free are eclipse and netbeans as you mentioned.
Commercial (although now also partially free) is IntelliJ idea - I like Idea

Some people use JDeveloper

There was some thread about Java books recently:

http://www.experts-exchange.com/Programming/Languages/Java/Q_26821266.html

I'm sure there weree many more on that

I guess Java is used a lot both on Windows and Linux - you choose by your situations

Are your AD admin tools letting you down?

Managing Active Directory can get complicated.  Often, the native tools for managing AD are just not up to the task.  The largest Active Directory installations in the world have relied on one tool to manage their day-to-day administration tasks: Hyena. Start your trial today.

My experience has been:

1. Eclipse
2. Windows
3. Spring
4. Since you are a C# programmer, I'd start with a Java for C# programmer book.

>>>what is the most used IDE for java today (eclipse/netbeans/etc),

Depend upon your requriement it will change .

Mostly Eclipse used because its free version and easy to use !
MyEclise it will used for JSF rich text box , spring framwork !
Jdeveloper if u develop a product then the it will usefull because its create a workspeace in tiers !
If you use only servlet,jsp  the go with editPlus !


>>>>>also, on most places is it linux or windows
Its platform indepent so you use any OS . But Mostly in windows  for develoment ! and server are in Linux !

>>>>what would be the most used frameworks/etc..

Now there are framwork are famous Spring,JSF Struts,

1. Best (my opinion) IntelliJ IDEA (but commercial), most used Eclipse (and very good too)
2. Windows
3. Spring - MyEclipse (mainly web development)
4. Don't know

If you have some money, I think IntelliJ IDEA is worth it. I don't know if it works on Linux.
Eclipse works fine on Windows and Linux.
Spring framework is great for web development and linking many aspects together (database, communication, web, ...).

Lots of good suggestions here.

I'd use Eclipse, but I'd stay away from all of the frameworks.  They're not like Visual Studio.  Eclipse is the closest thing to Visual Studio, and it only has a few of the hand-holding features you'd be used to from VS.  The problem with the frameworks is that
1) they make debugging harder
2) they are used by small subsets of Java programmers, so it's harder to get good online help.  You can look at the silence on EE when there's a Spring or struts question to see that.

Eclipse is very good as a Java IDE.

I was using NetBeans IDE and found that every time you run an application with Frame (window) and
the application has only one Java class
then you close the window, the application does not terminate automatically.
So if you run the same application, you have 2 instances of the same application in memory.
If you keep running the same application multiple time, they all stay in memory.  You have to kill it manually.

In Eclipse, this problem does not exist.

Actually, in Eclipse it does not automatically terminate when you close the window,
but when you run the same application, it does not use separate memory space.
