Just bought Ivor's book for a course I'm starting next year. This year I've been using JBuilder which I like but I wanted to get 'back to basics' to work through this book. In the first section Ivor recommends using a basic text editor to minimize the help you get from an IDE. I totally agree with this but I was surprised when I downloaded his recommended program (JCreator) to find it was similar (and in some ways better) than JBuilder.
So have I got the wrong end of the stick here? Is there another, no frills, version of JCreator or should I resist temptation and just stick with good ol faithful notepad?
