Well I'll be taking AP Computer Science A and I read the course study and it's going to be java-centric and was wondering if y'all had an IDE recommendation? I know of NetBeans/Eclipse but I was wondering if there are any other out there that you'd recommend.
Eclipse is kind of overkill for anything you will do in that class. Its a great piece of software but sometimes just to much. I would run Dr. Java if you want a really simple editor thats pretty user friendly, for small programs such as the ones you would be doing in this class.
