What is an IDE ?

Hello, how are you doing? well i am fine indeed.In my last post we make our way to create a program which is called a MovingBall, which is a program that makes a ball moves accross the screen and it could bounce off the side of the program and that is very cool and to make that program we use an IDE the IDE is called netbeans. Now, we’re going to talk about IDE, first i apologize if there is any mistake, any help or knowledge would be nice. Lets be done with the chit-chat and lets begin.

First, we need to know what an IDE is, and why is it created. well in my understanding, an IDE is a software application that provides the computer with facilities for computer programming or software development, it contains a code editor or a compiler that the user acces through a single GUI (graphical user interface). It is created for computer programmers and software developers because it has a compiler or code editor that helps coding syntax, what do I mean by help? well simply it could add a sugestion on what you’re going to type and this is very helpful for a beginner coder because we don’t need to search the internet or read books and do other complicated things, it will automatically add sugestion on what we’re suppose to type or what we want to type, an IDE will serves developing environment on one or multiple coding language.

You might ask, what is the functionality of an IDE? Just like I say before it has a compiler of code editor that helps coding syntax and there are many common features that is created in an IDE, such as debugging code or program and data structure browser etc… this is  very helpful for its user because it can make a user quickly execute an action without needing to go to another application so that help maximize the productivity of coding with the help of its GUI (graphical user interface) and UI (user interface).

what is an example of an IDE? there are 2 IDEs that i know, first one is Netbeans and the second one is Java Eclipse. each of them serves the developing environment with their own way but you’ll find it very similar in some way. if you want to check it out here is the link : Netbeans and Java Eclipse. You may try both of them at first, but as you feel more comfortable with an IDE you should choose one of them to avoid complicated problem when you switch from one to another ID, you should choose the one that you thinks more comfortable and you feel good with it.

here are 2 footages of both Netbeans and Java Eclipse:

The programming language that I specialize in is Java, because I think Java programming language is more universal and of course because I like it regardless of any reason.
