It's not so bad now with PASE and open source.

Even so, a purpose built IDE is much better than a generic editor.

With jEdit, Atom, or any other GUI editor, you *STILL* need a workstation ... why not do the hard work on a workstation (which is going to be faster) with an IDE that supports immediate compile, syntax checking, context hints, debugging, etc.

Add to that, if someone has RDi for RPG, Cobol, & Cl development ... they automatically have a very rich Java development environment.

IMO, there's no way to justify doing java development directly on the i if you have RDi (or just about any of it's predecessors).
