Integrated development environments
When creating a Java program, manually compiling, debugging, and creating code can be a time consuming and often fault-ridden process. With an Integrated Development Environment (IDE), many of those tasks can be automated. An IDE is a software designed to facilitate computer application development.

In this section on Integrated Development Environments, find news, research, and tutorials on how to use an IDE, and discover tips and and advice for choosing the IDE that's right from you. The IDE can be an invaluable tool in creating Java applications.
