    Java IDE with Intellisense


    I'm looking for a Java IDE with IntelliSense-like functionality. Specifically,
    I would like class methods and functions to appear when I type the scope
    resolution operator (.) ala Microsoft Visual Basic / VBA.

    Any IDEs do this?

    Thanks,

    Matthew Cromer

    Hello Matthew:

    I came from a VB background as well and have been using VisualCafe for the
    past 3 years. Since version 2, Cafe has supported code completion in much
    the same manner as VB. The current release, VC 4, does a pretty good job
    of implementing this.

    Of course Visual J++ from MS does Intellisense but I'd stay away from that
    one if I were just getting started with Java as it uses older technology
    as a result of the ongoing lawsuits. It also adds its own extensions to
    Java to make it more appealing to do Windows-only apps. It's not really
    Java in a pure sense.

    My two cents,

    Tom Duffy

    Borland/Inprise JBuilder provides this functionality, at least in versions
    3 and above.

    I tried this out. Took 42 min.(!!) to show up on the screen. Another 7 minutes
    for the menu to appear, running outta thread i closed app.
    This could be 'cause i use a 300 Mhz P II Compaq with 32 MB RAM. Well at
    home i am with a MMx 166Mhz. and 64 MB RAM.
    This stops me from downlaoding Forte in the first place.
    I am sure its a great IDE , but anyluck with running it with such low config.

    stay in constant touch!

    The guys at inteRAD Technology have a Java IDE that allows you to select the
    methods from a selection list, with mouse operation. If my memory serves
    correctly, they call it build-IT or something similar.

    Try CodeGuide (www.omnicore.com).

    We are currently using it on Windows NT, 98, 2000. Works well, only costs
    $100.

    Cheers.

    Visual Slick Edit has the best code completion facilities of any of the editors.
    It is not really a complete IDE but I use it with Jbuilder 3 EE and Together/J
    and they all compliment each other.

    Hi Matthew,
    You can use visual cafe 4.0 expert edition which has
    the intellisense feature.You can physically invoke the intellisense with
    ctrl + j key also in any visual cafe project
    environment.
    thanks

    Try JBuilder. There's a Foundation version that's available under Solaris,
    Linux and Windows. Best of all, it's free.

    You can download it from http://www.borland.com/jbuilder/foundation/

    Hope this helps.

    Matthew,

    All the major players in the Java IDE game feature intelliSense. This includes
    Visual Cafe, JBuilder and
    IBM's Visual Age. Of the three, only Visual Age requires a key operation
    to bring up the intelliSense feature.
    The others come up automatically. Sadly, none are as slick as Visual Studio
    however.

    give Jedit a try - provided you have the java source, all methods get looked
    up.

    Actually, if I am correct, almost all of the top java IDEs support code completion.
    I prefer VisualAge and it supports it. I have also used VisualCafe, J++,
    & JBuilder. Everyone of them support some level of code completion. I will
    also state that every article that I have ever read on "what real programmers
    use" say that most of the professional development going on out there ( out
    here? ) is done with command-lines & simple text editors. ( If you decide
    to take that route, I recommend UltraEdit. It's not complete IntelliSense(TM)
    but, it's better than nothing. ).

    Just my 2 cents.

    Another one to look at is AnyJ 2.0 from Netcomputing. (www.netcomputing.de).
    This IDE is very fast and uses XML in conjunction with Java to really create
    some slick interfaces etc.
