Damir is right, NetBeans is very good. I've been using Eclipse for years and it's excellent also. I've been able to do basic JLink applications as well as full blown client/server CADWorker type projects. There is one thing that NetBeans has on Eclipse- the Swing based GUI editor. Eclipse has a version that is barely usable.So depending on whether you'll be doing Swing GUI's or not those are two very good and fairly comparable IDE's. And they're free !! It's a wonderful life.
I've tried developing JLink apps with Netbeans but Pro/E doesn't seem to find the application when starting up. I put the full path in the protk.dat file with no joy.
Had anybody used Netbeans to develop JLink apps? If so, do you have any tips or tricks? Thanks.
I am using Netbeans to develop J-Link Application from last 2 years.
I using netbeans 6.0 with Java 1.6 & my all applications works perfactly. although J-Link Documentation is still stickedwith Java 1.4 along with PTC support team.
I developed the J-Link Application & copy the the jar file to a different folder which having protk.dat & text folder etc.
I understand it is a cumbersome method as you need to do this thing manually & restart Pro/E after every replacement of jar file.
Thanks & Regards
