PRACTICAL Week 5
This practical aims at introducing the students to Java Integrated Development Environments
(IDEs) available in the labs, so that the students can make their own judgments which IDE
they would prefer to work with. Currently (Week 4) there are three IDEs in the labs, and the
fourth (WSAD5) may be also available soon. Two IDEs are open source and two commercial
ones:
1) NetBeans 4
2) Eclipse 3
3) Oracle’s JDeveloper 10g (built on top of NetBean)
4) IBM’s WebSphere Studio Application Developer 5 (WSAD 5)
Enclosed are documents and links to documents that would allow students to experiment
with these IDEs, as follows:
1)
NetBeans 4

Please refer to “NetBeans Quick Start” document. It is also available through
Netbean’s documentation.
2)
Eclipse 3

Please refer to “Java Basics: Eclipse for Students” tutorial and to two simple Java
classes (Helloworld.java and MyPrinter.java) for debugging part. The tutorial is based
on some online guidelines. It shows how to create a Java project and how to use
debugger in Eclipse. For more information, students can open Eclipse and go
Help>Help Contents>Workbench User Guide>Getting Started>Basic Tutorial – it
doesn’t cover the debugger though.
3)
JDeveloper 10g

Please use the link “JDeveloper Tutorial” to refer to Oracle’s intuitive tutorial online,
which explains the project creation and debugger.
4)
WSAD 5

Please refer to “WSAD Getting Started” document. It is also available through WSAD
Help>HelpContents. Alternatively, you can use the same tutorial as for Eclipse 3
above.
