The new Net Beans IDE Java developer software. Good in theory

P: n/a
Nowadays when you obtain the SDK form java.com
you get a new interactive programming environemt
much like the Borland C++ IDE.

Up to now I've been developing applications "the old way"
using the operating system command line method.
that is, javac MyApp.java

Then my computer at home crashed and I decided to install the
JDK on my office computer. This was when I got the new
Net Beans IDE. It all seemed good in theory, having eveything
conveniently in one package, the editing, compiling and
executing of your program. It even promised a way to assemble
Jar files.

The problem is that application programs which compiled just fine
using the Command line compiler (javac MyApp.java) seemed to generate
numerous "Cannot Resolve Symbol" errors on this new IDE thing.
This is despite I had all necessary classes in the same directory.

Another thing, I cannot make Jar files for my applets.
I also han do problems with the command line method.

I just don't understand. What's worse is that there are no readily
available online resources to address such issues.

Thank goodness I didn't have to pay for this thingy.

What did these super-qualified programmers employed by Sun Microsystems
lear in college?

I finally got my home computer up and running again and
I so happend to have an SDK (command line java compiler) from a CD I got
with a Java textbook.

I loaded it onto my computer and I am back in business again.

I think NetBeans IDE is really robust & has very good feature.

Main advangtage of NetBeans it is Simple & free.

I did try Eclipse....it lacks many features compared to NetBeans.

And is is very easy to config with other Env.

If you're having problems, ask. Don't just rant about your inability to set
up NetBeans properly. Ask how to do it and catch up with the times. Your
"Cannot Resolve Symbol" problem is almost certainly due to the fact that you
don't know how NetBeans deals with the Java classpath. Another thing: you
only get the NetBeans bundle if you ask for it. I'd recommend downloading
and installing them separately.
