    JAVA development which one?


    Hi,

    I am looking for some comment on which Java programming
    tool to use. VB is my background. Years ago I used
    Symantec Think C and liked that. But I could not find
    Visual Cafe at their web site.

    Opinions please ? I want a strong Visual Gui environment.
    I will be using it from a PC ( WIN 2 K ).

    Thanks
    Andrew

    people i work with really like JBuilder. i think it is ok as long as you
    write code using sun components...i refuse to use the borland data-aware
    controls. the debugger is ok.

    I like IBM's VisualAge for Java the best, but it costs in the thousands range.
    MS's Visual J++ is pretty poor, but cheaper than JBuilder and VisAge.

    Hello Andrew:

    I've been using Visual Cafe for a few years and like it a lot. It has its
    quirks but all IDEs have them. I too came from a VB background and have
    found VC the most intuitive IDE to work with when coming from VB.

    Symantec recently sold Cafe to Webgain. Find info on it here:

    HTH,

    Tom
