"compact and easy to use"

What do you like best?

The main advantage of Jcreator is that it is compact and easy to use, allows to create light and powerful applications that solve problems.

It is faster, more efficient and more reliable than most Java IDEs available in the market. Therefore, it is the perfect tool for programmers of all levels, from beginner to Java experts.

JCreator offers the user a wide variety of features such as: Project management, project models, automatic code completion, debugging interface, editor with syntax highlighting, wizards and a fully customizable user interface.

With JCreator you can directly compile or run the Java program without having to activate the main document in the foreground. JCreator will automatically find the file with the main method or the HTML file on which the Java applet is based, then it will start the appropriate tool.

JCreator is written entirely in C ++, which makes it fast and efficient compared to Java / s-based editors. IDE.

What do you dislike?

Being such a light application, Jcreator lacks certain features that do have other commercial IDES, in addition to integrations with other products.

Only available for the Windows operating system, although Wine can be used to run JCreator on Unix systems[4]

When using the JDK Help feature, the default browser settings may not be honored when opening an external browser for the JDK documentation.

It will mostly open Internet Explorer and rarely a default browser not Internet Explorer.[citation needed]

No option for temporary highlighting of files.

XML highlighting disables itself with really long lines.

Custom icons can only be made from 16 colors

Recommendations to others considering the product:

allow to integrate with more applications and services

It's an extremely extensive tool that includes all the tool's you will require to begin and modify your jobs. It supplies numerous functions and tools in a basic, hassle-free and quick application.

What do you dislike?

A Linux variation would be great to have. There ought to be a neighborhood assistance, it would be a plus and is a bit to costly i believe.

"Lightweight, Fast and Simple Java IDE"

What do you like best?

The editor is best suited for the programmers/students who are new in programming.

The interface is very clean and very easy to use. It's a very comprehensive tool that contains all the tool's you will need to start and edit your projects, as well as to maintain insight on the various features that the application offers to it's users, for example the application helps the user with a modules like autocompleting functions, project view, and a compiler/debbuger.

Advantages:

-A small download compared to some of the better known Java IDE's.

-Tree view for projects, classes and interfaces.

-The environment features a some level of configurability, with tool bars, key bindings and links to external tools all available.

-Integration with Java SDK and documentation.

What do you dislike?

Disadvantages:

-JCreator only runs under Windows, there's no Linux or Unix version.

-Lack of an effective macro or plug-in architecture means that extending with new functionality is not an option.

-JCreator clearly doesn't have the full range of functionality of other platforms (Eclipse, NetBeans, etc) have to offer.

-No community support.

-The paid version is quite expensive for what is offered...

Recommendations to others considering the product:

JCreator is a highly interactive development environment for Java, providing users with multiple functions and tools in a simple, convenient and fast application, but even the Pro version lack's of ton's of functions that other's IDE's offer and for free.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

If you develop on Windows and are looking for something that's fast and light-weight then this is one tool that deserves serious consideration.

I use JCreator in college. It worked for me in the first years. Then need to move on other platforms as JCreator fell short in functionalities for more complex developments.
