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

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


What I mostly need is an editor that does formatting and some syntax
checking and suggestions.

For Java, I do use NetBeans IDE. For Go language, Atom editor is
effectively an IDE.

For other stuff, jEdit and Midnight Commander with F-keys bound to scripts.

And now this latter solution works on PASE.



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.



For the classic ILE languages I'd agree. For CL itself, SEU is still great,
for that matter.

For Java, Ruby, Python, etc. on the i RDi NOT NEEDED - NOT INVITED! :)

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).


NetBeans NetBeans NetBeans and again I say NetBeans :)
