    Any JBuilder 4 users out there?


    Just wondering if anyone here is a JBuilder 4 user, and if you have any positive
    (or negative) info or thoughts about this IDE. Thanks all,

    -Sean-

    I use JBuilder 4 on a regular basis and have found it to be a good realiable
    tool. It is memory hungry though, so a minimum of about 128 meg of ram is
    needed. I have 256 meg of ram and it runs quite nice on that. I also run
    JBuilder in both Linux and Windows 2000, but mainly on Linux.

    I have tried Forte, Visual Cafe and Kawa and still find that JBuilder is my
    cup of tea.

    Hi all,

    I am still a newbie to Java and have been learning the language using just
    a text editior and the JDK(so I could learn the language properly without
    any builder stuff getting in the way) I have now decided to move to a full
    IDE, I have looked a few but have decided to have a go with JBuilder but
    i'm having a problem with creating libraries (packages).

    How are packages handled in JBuilder, how do I make JBuilder aware of packages
    I create as simply entering the package name in the class file doesn't allow
    me to then import that package in another project as it doesn't appear in
    the packages list to import.

    Any help would be appreciated


    Brett

    If you go to Project->Project Properties then in the Paths tab select Required
    Libraries and just select Add button to include the one you want....

    Dear Sean,
    maybe i have one negative: Sometimes and only sometimes when rebuilding the
    whole project, some of the sources are not compiled. I don't know why, but
    i have to rebuild (make) sources separately - then it works! ;-( Maybe this
    is due to I have added one package with subdirectory. Don't know...maybe
    someone helps....;-)

    I'm using JBuilder 4 Professional (started out with Foundation) and IMHO,
    is the best. I'd have to agree with some of the other comments about memory
    hog, or an exasperating problem of losing IDE/GUI changes for some strange,
    untraceable reason. Same often!

    Between Visual Cafe and JBuilder, I've found that JBuilder is a much better
    tool for generating 'standard' Java code when using the IDE to prototype
    a GUI. Visual Cafe added 'funky' stuff when using their IDE for GUI prototyping.

    JBuilder does not have as nice of a Javadoc editor/integration as Visual
    Cafe, although there are some 3rd-party OpenTools available to pick up some
    of the slack. I'm in the process of looking into this now.

    Just my two cents...

    I use JBuilder (Foundation) to develop applications for PalmOS, mainly
    because there is an add-on available to integrate the IDE with Sun's J2ME
    PalmOS device profile, which allows me to create PalmOS executables right
    from the IDE instead of messing around with the profile's command line-based
    tools. So far my experience with JBuilder has been positive, with just a
    couple exceptions:

    That exasperating little bug where JBuilder loses GUI/IDE changes really
    shows through here, since it perpetually loses the path to my J2ME profile,
    but I was able to work around that by just changing the default compiler.
    Other than that, my only complaint is that it seems to crash on me about
    once every day or so, usually (once again) when I'm poking around with the
    GUI/IDE options...

    All and all, it's relatively stable and feature rich, and it meets my needs,
    so I'll continue to use it despite it's shortcomings. But that doesn't mean
    I'm about to uninstall Visual J++ anytime soon.
