We don't really get recomended on which editors to use.

I prefer JCreator for applets, it's lightweight and starts quickly.

Then there's Eclipse, industry standard development tool.

Then there's also Netbeans, written in java so cross-platform.

Also Notepad++ that supports around 40 languages with syntax highlighting etc. (I use this as a notepad replacement to edit all my text based files... Java/php/cpp etc.) The website doesn't look very good, but the editor is very clean and VERY usable.

Netbeans is on the COSALL CD that we got at the beginning of the year. I find that it's quite easy to use and it has an autofill feature, which is quite usefull.

The major problem I have with it is that I find that the longer I have it open and the more I use it, the slower it gets. When I first open the programme, it's very fast but it slows down over time and that really annoys me.
