Jake MacMullin has released JJEdit 0.4 (yep, the decimal is in the right place), a light-weight Integrated Development Environment (IDE) for Java programming on Mac OS X. It includes a text editor for editing Java source code with features such as code coloring, auto-indenting, bracket-matching and auto-completion of Java class names.
“Java programming on Mac OS X has been in the news recently,” MacMullin told MacCentral. “However, beginners often find it hard to get started with the complex development environments that professional programmers use. People who are learning Java need an environment that runs well, is simple and easy to use.”
Rather than attempting to provide thousands of features and options, JJEdit is designed with novice programmers in mind, providing “simple yet powerful tools and making it even easier to write, compile and run Java on Mac OS X,” he added.
