    "FAST, Functional, Useful, Feature Rich"

    November 2, 2005  |   By ITVGuy2000


    I love SlickEdit. I have been using it for years. I originally got it for the brief emulation. Now, I use it at the core of my web development environtment. This is an source code editor, and build environment, not a WYSIWYG editor. Features included are to numerous to list, but a few of my favorites are:

    1) super fast load time

    2) tagging (support for autocomplete and java docs as you code)

    3) built in FTP client

    4) simple and intuitive look and feel.

    5) truely multi-language multi-platform.

    6) does not force u into its concept of an environment or deployment methodology. U set it up the way U want it to work.


    Lagging tools like MyEclipse for support of things like:

    1) lack built in struts config file generation.

    2) lack of convenience utilities like generation of setters and getters for beans.

    3) lack of SQL/Database browser and schema generator.
