What do you like best?
The editor is best suited for the programmers/students who are new in programming.
The interface is very clean and very easy to use. It's a very comprehensive tool that contains all the tool's you will need to start and edit your projects, as well as to maintain insight on the various features that the application offers to it's users, for example the application helps the user with a modules like autocompleting functions, project view, and a compiler/debbuger.
-A small download compared to some of the better known Java IDE's.
-Tree view for projects, classes and interfaces.
-The environment features a some level of configurability, with tool bars, key bindings and links to external tools all available.
-Integration with Java SDK and documentation.
What do you dislike?
-JCreator only runs under Windows, there's no Linux or Unix version.
-Lack of an effective macro or plug-in architecture means that extending with new functionality is not an option.
-JCreator clearly doesn't have the full range of functionality of other platforms (Eclipse, NetBeans, etc) have to offer.
-No community support.
-The paid version is quite expensive for what is offered...
Recommendations to others considering the product
JCreator is a highly interactive development environment for Java, providing users with multiple functions and tools in a simple, convenient and fast application, but even the Pro version lack's of ton's of functions that other's IDE's offer and for free.
What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?
If you develop on Windows and are looking for something that's fast and light-weight then this is one tool that deserves serious consideration.
I use JCreator in college. It worked for me in the first years. Then need to move on other platforms as JCreator fell short in functionalities for more complex developments.
