by Nancy S. Business Consultant

Every project has a different requirement and it is worth experimenting with alternative Java IDEs to feel one of the strength of the Java world from the available choice. The IDEs offer debugging, code inspections, code assistance, JUnit testing, multiple refactoring, visual GUI builder and code editor, Java, Maven build tools, ant, TestNG and more for building Java applications..

Every day the developers spend a lot of time working with JAVA code and try their hands on a variety of different Integrated Development Environments (IDEs) to bring out the good java code so we thought to come up with best free IDEs for developers and coders.

Android Studio
It is mainly designed by Google for Android development which was originally handled om IntelliJ IDEA community edition. It includes features like Flexible Gradle-based build system, multiple APK generation, and expanded template support for theme editing, Lint tools, ProGuard, app-signing capabilities, and Google Cloud Platform. You can access these features under the Apache License 2.0 for free and can also be downloaded on Windows, Mac OS X, and Linux.

Enide Studio 2014
Its latest version 0.11 was initially released as a stand-alone product for all the operating systems. Lately, it also developed a Tool suite for Node.js, JavaScript and Java development which is available from the Eclipse plugin store including features like Chrome development tools, AngularJS for Eclipse, TCF Terminals, GitHub Flavored Markdown and more.

It is mainly developed for educational purposes and also suitable for small-scale software development. It is free and open source software licensed under GNU GPL with the classpath exception. It can run on Windows, Mac OS X, Linux and other platforms that run Java and it is a powerful graphical shell/ REPL for Java.

It is a text editor that beats many expensive development tools for features and ease of use. It comes with a built-in macro language with an extensible plugin architecture to support a large number of character encoding including UTF8 and Unicode.

It is primarily created for an automatic generation of software visualizations for improved comprehensibility of software capable of producing static visualizations of source code and data structures at runtime. jGRASP also consist of Control Structure Diagrams for Java, C, C++, Python, and VHDL and can run on any JVM.

It is useful IDE for creating cross-platform Java applications for various domains. The developers can run, compile, edit and create Java files using its main features such as syntax highlighting for multiple languages and Java Swing components.

An IDE by Oracle Corporation released as a freeware that offers various features in Java, XML, PL/SQL, BPEL and more for integrating the Oracle Application Development Framework (Oracle ADF). The same also serves for support in SQL and Oracle products which supports Java and has a Code Editor and Code Navigation.

We came up with many new IDE which is open source and easy to use for the developers. Also, there are some most famous IDEs for Java development which you can try on. Always try on to alternatives before choosing the correct one for your project.
