jEdit

jEdit

jEdit is a mature programmer's text editor. It has an easy to use interface that resembles that of many other Windows and Mac text editors.

It uses the Swing toolkit for the GUI and can be configured as a rather powerful IDE through the use of its plugin architecture. Many of the jEdit's plugin applications, and a few of the macros distributed with the program, target the Java language or integrate tools used in Java development.

The application is highly customizable and can be extended with macros written in BeanShell, Jython, JavaScript and some other scripting languages.
