personally, I use intellij

A friend recommended by Vertical Frankenstein (4.00 / 1) #4 Mon Dec 17, 2007 at 11:07:01 AM EST
itellij as well.  I may have to bite the $500 bullet.

Eclipse on WinXP at work, eclipse on OS X at home.

Does XCode do java, or is it just for Obj-C?

[ Does XCode do java, or is it just for Obj-C? ]

It does java, but I suspect it wants to do Mac OS apps.  I don't want it to be all "let's make a GUI" when I'm all "let's make a servlet."

IIRC, X Code has templates for servlets by lm (2.00 / 0) #8 Mon Dec 17, 2007 at 11:16:01 AM EST
But I haven't fired up X Code since 2003. My memory may be faulty.

JSP > Servlets by discordia (2.00 / 0) #12 Mon Dec 17, 2007 at 11:44:43 AM EST
are you required to use servlets?

No by Vertical Frankenstein (4.00 / 1) #14 Mon Dec 17, 2007 at 11:48:51 AM EST
But mixing code and markup ala PHP offends me.

care to explain why "JSP > Servlets"?

[ Parent ]
well that isn't entirely always true by discordia (4.00 / 1) #17 Mon Dec 17, 2007 at 11:59:00 AM EST
but if you're doing presentation work (i.e. html and markup), it is true.

if you're doing processing work with no presentation, then disregard.

But in Roman numerals. What's that meant to mean?
