Australian developer Jake MacMullin has updated his JJEdit (Jake’s Java Editor), a lightweight IDE (integrated development environment), to version 1.1. The update works with Apple’s new implementation of Java for Mac OS X (Java 1.4.1), which was released on March 10.

Built for novice programmers, JJEdit offers a simple interface for editing, compiling and running Java applications. The IDE offers such features as: auto-completion of class names; auto-indenting of code; syntax coloring; bracket matching; the ability to set class paths and command-line arguments; and integrated searching of the Java API (application programming interface). It also provides the ability to generate JavaDocs and double-clickable .jar files.
In addition to the support for Java 1.4.1, JJEdit 1.1 improves support for mobile developers by allowing users to tell JJEdit to use a local copy of the Java documentation for the integrated search rather than having to be connect to the Internet. JJEdit 1.1 costs US$5.
