OS/2 and eComStation OpenJDK had been released as GA for OS/2 and eComStaion. This allows eCS-OS2 users to run modern Java apps on their platform. The development is open source and had been in part sponsored by donations of the community.

Kdevelop... nice and fast!


KDevelop is maybe 10% as powerful as Eclipse, NetBeans, or IDEA? Seriously, Kdevelop is a toy compared to any of the big three Java IDEs. It doesn't have nearly the features or capabilities

But seriously, Java GUI's are pretty bad. I can't think of a good one.


You just haven't looked at the right GUIs then. The following are all pure Java apps, using Swing. I would say these GUIs are up to par with any native application, wouldn't you?

Again, I think you just haven't looked at the right applications if you think all Java GUIs are pretty bad.
