What's the easiest interface to use for java programming? I only know of eclipse and of course any text editor. Is there any others?

Eclipse is an IDE. An interface is a particular type of Java class that contains empty methods.

Some people prefer Eclipse, I use Netbeans. Some people prefer a text editor. All IDE's take some time to learn how to use. All they really help you do is run and compile the code, as well as check for syntax errors.

I'm personally also a fan of Netbeans. I can't stand Eclipse :thumbsup:

I'm actually a bit of a fan of Eclipse, but then again I've never tried NetBeans. I would only ever use Eclipse (or any bulky IDE for that matter) if I was working on a substantially large project. Anything smaller than a couple of KLOC and I'd stick with a text editor and a Makefile.

I use eclipse and find it quite useful as it will show all your projects that you've worked on if you keep them in the package explorer so you can reference back to previously written code.

I personally prefer TextPad. It's like Windows Notepad on steroids. It's free, small, and quite simple to use.

I use BlueJ, it's always worked well for me.

Note that BlueJ is an educational tool and was never intended to be a serious programming IDE. I'm not saying it's bad, but I am saying you'll see few professional developers using it.
