If you’re just getting into programming, or want it to be as simple as possible, you’ll be pleased to hear that JJEdit, a light-weight Integrated Development Environment (IDE) for Java programming on Mac OS X, has been updated to version 0.5.

JJEdit includes a text editor for editing Java source code with features such as code colouring, auto-indenting, bracket matching and auto-completion of Java class names. The update has new features designed specifically for the education market, such as the ability to click on any Java class name within JJEdit and choose “Search API…” from the contextual menu in order to view Sun Microsystems Inc.’s API documentation for that class on the Web. JJEdit 0.5 also includes the ability to specify a class path and refinements to font preferences.

IBM joins .NET program for developers

IBM Corp. joined Microsoft Corp.’s Visual Studio.NET Integration Program to make it easier for developers to build applications for its DB2 database in forthcoming Windows .NET environments, IBM said.

Tying together DB2 and Visual Studio.NET, Microsoft’s application for software developers will reduce time and costs of developing applications running on DB2, IBM said in a statement. The move is no surprise: DB2 already delivers a set of tools for customers using Microsoft’s Visual Studio. IBM also supports many other operating systems, including Linux and Unix.
