How to Set-up an IDE for Java (+Video)
Starting Java or any other programming language needs a platform to write the codes or scripts there. The platform is called IDE (Integrated Development Environment); e.g. Java IDE. There are different and we can say many platforms or IDEs for the programming languages. The most popular IDEs are like Notepad++ for C++, HTML, CSS and etc, SublimeText for HTMl, CSS, PHP and some other, DEVC++ for C++, TurboC for C programming and etc.
Java codes must be compiled after they are written. Therefore java needs a Development Kit and Development Environment.
Preferred Java IDE:
We recommend you to use Netbeans in–order to write, Compile and Run the java’s codes. Netbeans can support different languages such as C++, PHP, Java and some other languages.
