"Fun programming environment"

April 08, 2009  |  By bob.taylor

 |  Version: BlueJ 2.2.1

Pros

Follows the rules - fun to use.

Cons

None really, if you don't expect it to help you create the next big thing. Much easier to learn programming JAVA than Eclipse - a great platform for developers, not for students.

Summary

Downloaded it since my kid is taking a programming class in college & the early assignments are in JAVA on BLUEJ. :o)

"CoolNile seems a bit confused . . ."

February 19, 2009  |  By SethEllison

 |  Version: BlueJ 2.2.1

Pros

Wonderful tool for visualizing classes and their relations to one another in a project.

BlueJ makes OOP much less painful by generated boilerplate code for you.

The IDE features a very comprehensible debugger.

Cons

None really, aside from said boilerplate code getting in the way from time to time.

Summary

@CoolNile:

a) BlueJ is not a Java-like language. It's an IDE (Integrated Development Environment) built for the Java platform. You write real Java code while using it.

b) BlueJ does NOT teach programming any more than a golf club teaches it's user how to play golf. It's a tool.

c) Java does not compile to a .EXE by default anywhere, and it's generally a bad idea to force it. Instead Java programs compile to bytecode (.class) for interpretation by the Java Runtime Environment.
