2190Re: Java Code Completion
- Sep 17, 2003I don't think so, but I might be wrong.
The following is not directed to you personally. I just need to vent.
Not to knock EditPlus, or the people posting the messages, but it
seems there are a lot of messages in which people are trying to push
EditPlus beyond what appears to be its developer's intention.
I use Edit Plus as a general text editor and for some lightweight
over time, and there is no way that EditPlus can compete with tools
like JEdit, Eclipse, or NetBeans for Java development. All are free
and have the code completion capability you seek, plus many more
I'm sure that there are other alternatives. These are just ones that
Granted, they are all much "heavier" than EditPlus, particularly
Eclipse and NetBeans, but that's what it takes to provide the
functionality a lot of people are seeking. All have a "plugin"
architecture that EditPlus lacks, which allows them to do almost
anything, depending on how well they architected their plugin API.
Speaking for myself, not Sangil Kim: It seems that EditPlus would
have to be totally rebuilt to compete. Why would he do that when his
competition is giving away their "product" free?
As others have expressed previously, I'd rather see EditPlus
stay "light" and use something else for the more specialized stuff.
