I went an installed Visual Age 3.02 for Linux (I thiunk it was called that)
and it caused 2 servers to crash miserably... Both were RedHats 6.1 and
the 6.1 crashed during the install and hung the server FULL lock.
the 6.2 actually worked until they reckomended to install the updated
Never turned back again...

Subject: [SLUG] Java IDEs
I was wondering of anyone had experience with any of the Java integrated
I am (and please do not judge me on this!) a VC++ programmer by trade, but
do not wish to use Visual J++ as I would like to make an extremely portable
Java app (it is for the biosciences - a third year uni software project, but
I would like to use a IDE since I will be doing a lot of dialog box type
work so would like not to have to go through and code all the resources by
One that ran on *NIX (Debian/GNU linux preferably) machines would be
extremely preferable, but I am also open to ones that run on M$ machines.
Also, I would appreciate any general comments people have in terms of
working with Java GUI apps (Swing library or others). Is Python/Tk a better
option? My main concern is portablilty across M$, MacOS, Solaris and IRIX
platforms, I plan to link to a C++ dynamically linked library
(cross-compiled with GCC, or I have access to C++ compilers on all the
mentioned platforms barring MacOS) for all the grunt number crunching.
If it weren't for the last minute, nothing would ever get done.
