wont run on won 8.1
Won't compile with java 8. It says it compiles, but the console reports an incompatibility with the compiler and no .class file is created. For a new java user that led to a lot of head scratching. Netbeans works with java 8. There's nothing I can find that warns of this incompatibility.
Very well job ! Working stable ! Many Thanks !
Great GUI for Java; saved me much frustration and still does. FOR OSX El Capitan users, who cannot open it, here's a fix: Find the application's location (it may be in your Downloads folder or Applications; the file is called DrJava.app In terminal, type "xattr -rc \path" where path is the location of the file as you found it. Then everything should work!
Excellent tool for teaching and test driven incremental development. I use it to teach my classes.
