JBuddy Screenshot

Java is a programming language with a really rich class library. There are many packages for the Java platform that may be used to perhaps all features that a programmer need.

There are many java development environment, open-source and commercial ones. Many environments are complex and difficult to use so they can't be used for teching or to simply try a new external library.

JBuddy solve this problems because:

With JBuddy you can use the Java language in a easy way, without project files, depencies or fancier things. JBuddy is easy to learn... somewhat instinctive!

A variant of JBuddy is being used at the University of Florence. You can read a paper here and another paper here

With JBuddy you can try an external library without creating a new project in your favourite ide! And don't worry! JBuddy has also the english localization!
