What is JWriter ?

JWriter is one of the simplest Java IDE available, which is suitable not only for learning purpose but also can be used in pofessional development projects. A great tool for the students who have just started learning programming especially in Java. A mature developer uses JWriter because of its simplicity and Editable nature.

JWriter provides nothing but a simple, interactive and intuitive interface for your Project Development. Totally written in Java (using Netbeans IDE). It is a stand alone, portable IDE which can runs no any platform.

Who it is meant for ?

Students: JWriter is a must for students who are not mature enough to use Netbeans IDE and want to start coding as soon as possible.

Professional: Professional developers can use it for quickly managing their Mysql JDBC code (JWriter has a Code generator for Mysql) and One can create their own It does not uses the Libraries of Netbeans also. Modular nature of the IDE makes it easily be configurable to suite your production/development requirements.

Why JWriter ?

As a student, i have noticed that when i work on my PC in my room, it is Superb with Netbeans , but some where else, where their is no Netbeans, all i can use is Notepad.

This JWriter is a direct replacement for it , as is gives in built Menu based Compile and run option. For new Programmers, setting classpath, starting command line and then javac and java is really difficult specially when you are working in packages.
