Ive been looking for the right compiler that i can use with java applet to create an online game so does any one know the best compiler for java applet? and where i can find it in a free download from a website? or a list of compilers that i can find free downloads??.

Note: Since its a course project so i have to choose the right compiler carefully so i won't change it after if i face an error cause i heard some compilers like Eclipes gives limitation on java applet.

Can some one help me?

Are you sure you mean compiler and not runtime, or potentially a JDK that supports a compliant version of both?

Are you seeking some "limitations" for your project? O_O

Your question grants a curious eye. I believe you're referring to the run-time, but to solve both problems you can go to Sun's website and download a stable JDK that provides both a JRE and updated javac.

I strongly suggest SE 6.0 (supplies the JDK 6.0).

Since i'm new on programming java:

(1) i need a compiler so i could learn how to program in java applet

Since in our group choose java applet to make an online game (that includes client + server) for our course project so:

(2) i need the right software to support our project

am confused with all the software or compilers to use such as Eclipse and JDK 6 so me and my group need help


Eclipes [sic] is not a compiler but an IDE.

you mean IDE = compiles + run :S ??? whats the difference between JDK 6 and Eclipse???

An IDE is just an integrated development environment. Some IDE's come with a compiler, but they aren't really compilers. Eclipse simply uses a javac and JRE supplied by a JDK.

You can compile Java programs without Eclipse. People typically use TextPad (5 and higher) but its also possible to use a java compiler (javac.exe) from the command line.

Since javac (the Java compiler) is an executable, it can take parameters. It takes a file name as a parameter then compiles that file. If the file does not have valid data in it to be compiled, the compiler will throw errors and it will not generate a .class file.

If you can compile a program successfully, a .class file is generated which can be run on any JRE provided the appropriate JRE is installed for the appropriate Operating System.

yeah, BlueJ, Eclipse and Netbeans all use the compiler (javac) from the Sun JDK. The IDE is just an editor, the JDK has all the actual linkers, librariers, compilers etc... and the JRE is what you actually use to run the programs in.
