Is Eclipse Stupid

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Hey guys i dont know if im stupid or if it is eclipse. Sometimes i like to start a program in textpad for its simplicity i make it and it does what i say it never trys to push methods on me. But when i make a program in textpad then open it in eclipse i only get the option to compile and run as an ant build now i dont know what that means. How do you open other source codes in eclipse?

If you want a IDE-like environment to write code, try Notepad++ ?

depends on how you are opening it in eclipse if you do not have it in a project folder then eclipse is a little bit dumb and does not necessarily know dependencies etc you could have and how it is supposed to compile it. So it basically asks you to supply that info in an ant build script.

Ant builds have many uses I would suggest looking up some articles on them and reading thoroughly. But in a sense they are like make files.

If you want to compile with eclipse then you should create the project through eclipse. Once the project is created you shouldn't have any problems editing with whatever program you want

I'm coding Java since 1 year. Been using Oracle JDevelopper. Works better than Eclipse according to my college teachers. I never tried Eclipse myself.

I have no experience with JDeveloper, however Eclipse is industry standard for Java. If there are any features that JDevelop has that you would like to see in Eclipse, either make a note of them, submit them, write them or tell us to write them in
That is why open source software is so beautiful.

With respect to the OP, that is because Eclipse organizes your classpath for you, thus you need to start a project, as Eclipse automatically/magically invokes javac correctly, removing the need for you to manually specify the libraries and classpath you wish to compile using, via command line. I agree with your sentiment with regards to not being able to open files and have them 'just work'. Maybe I will tool around and see if I can find/create an open as standalone option that 'guesses' what you wish to compile with.
