"J--" is a integrated development environment, which equips the Java
(TM) Development Kit from SUN® Microsystems with a graphical user interface.
The development environment consists of the project management, an editor,
some GUI builders and the help system. The editor is able to handle multiple
documents and provides syntax coloring for Java™ source code, the integrated
class browser enables the user to find methods and attributes quickly.
The GUI builder allows the easy construction of menus and toolbars. The
help system uses the documentation files shipped with SUN®’s JDK. This
ensures, that the help system can be used with future versions of the Java
(TM) Development Kit.
J-- is available under the GNU General Public Licence (read "licence.txt"
of the distribution package). You can download the product using the link
